Without seeing it there is little to go on for troubleshooting.
I am, however, VERY interested in knowing how this goes and will help if I can. I suppose my streetfighter will need a clutch eventually and learning from yours will be good.
LMK, if I can do anything.

At a guess, I would say either there is a part missing in the actuation side or the hydraulics have air in them.

You should be able to see the clutch plates move slightly when you pull the lever. If not then, like I mentioned, something is missing or there is air.
If they move then something else may be wrong.

I would have to guess you still have some air in the hydraulic line.

The master & slave cylinders "disengage" the clutch.....

Unless he misspoke he is saying it won't engage. I would guess either something is the wrong part or basket/discs are not correctly aligned.

Will the bike not move as in the clutch is disengaged or will the bike not stop pulling even with the clutch lever pulled in?

To better word it when you squeez the clutch to change gears. You can change gears but it acts like I didn't squeez the clutch at all. I had it on the stand and put it into first and the wheel spun. But it was like I said earlier. When you squeeze the clutch when it the wheel was rolling the wheel kept going.

Don't know much bout ducs but seems like the pivot rod that engages or disengages the clutch isn't in or put in correct.

when on a stand, the wheel will still spin sometimes even with the clutch pulled. There is still some friction in the system, just not supposed to be enough to move the bike.

Maybe you could be more clear. Remember we reading this and have no idea what you're doing.

1) When you were talking about the tire turning with the clutch pulled, did you mean with the engine running?
2)With the engine off, bike in neutral, will the wheel turn?
3)engine off, bike in gear will the wheel turn? If no, what happens when you pull the clutch?

I'll try to help you troubleshoot but Patrick knows more than most anybody on here. Talk to him or if he doesn't answer, talk to me.

If you want to call me, PM for number (there's a bunch of pervs on here so I won't give it out, lol)

If the tire is turning and the engine off...he's got a ghost rider..

Did you install the pushrod correctly?
Was there a spacer or "hat" that went on the pushrod?
Did you assemble the pressure plate bearing correctly?
What's your plate stack up compared to stock?

The push rod is not complicated, atleast I think its not. It slides right in the slot almost like the pushrod of a rear master booster.
No spacer that I saw....
As far as I can tell it is in correctly... slides right over the shaft and I pushed it in as far as I could get it... it is more like a spacer between the basket and. Trans shaft..

Plate stack is exactly in the same way as stock.. I numbered them.
Thanks for help patrick

By stack up I mean total thickness of the plates.
If the total thickness of the new plates is significantly thicker that could cause an issue.
Is it a stock or aftermarket clutch kit?
