Clutch troubleshooting.. 2003 zx7r

So my clutch was starting to slip until i got that thing real hot.
Those plates were fried when i got them out.

Ordered and installed EBC SRK pack.
Didnt want to do all the heavy duty springs so i did 3.

Now that new pack is in, i can pull the clutch and when i go into first its rough and clutch is grabbing slightly.

Being that i have a hydraulic clutch I bled it and still has the problem.

Thoughts?
Master cylinder?
Maybe those 3 heavy duty springs i put in?

Thanks
Jobes

It seemed like it wanted to get better but was still grabbing.

If you did not soak your clutch plates in oil it can take a while to smooth out.

Have you ever let the clutch fluid get real dirty? The slave cylinder could probably stand to be taken apart and cleaned. It is at the lowest point in the system and will accumulate moisture.
