Clutch

I have put a brand new clutch in my 99 r1 but it is still slipping terribly bad. What could the problem be?

20-50 oil from the dealer. It was a complete kit with both plates soaked over night.

I learned the hard way back in 92' when I changed from the factory OEM petroleum based motor oil I had in my 91' Kawasaki ZX7.
I had put in Full Synthetic motor oil without changing out the clutch plates.

It took about 2-3 days of normal riding before I got on the gas and slowly hear the engine rev higher but the bike didn't take off like it normally did.

They almost always need to be adjusted after replacement.

it doesnt have springs, just a spring plate that goes on last. it did it before i changed out the clutch and that why i thought it needed changing.
