Help. Issues after changing clutch discs.

What's up. So I changed out my clutch discs (friction and steel) and springs today on my 2004 honda cbr600rr with an EBC kit. 8 friction and 7 steel. Let the friction discs soak for a little over 2 hours. They looked identical to my OEM parts. Torqued the spring bolts to 9ft/lbs. Everything went back together they way it should (or at least I thought). Bike cranked up perfectly in neutral. As soon as I put it into gear, the bike takes off WHILE my clutch lever is still engaged. I stopped, adjusted it every way possible, and still no change. Any ideas? Do I need to ride it around to break it in? I also changed my oil, used royal purple 10w40 max cycle

This is how it is. Is this correct? I honestly can't remember how I took it off.

While the lever is engaged, meaning the clutch is disengaged. I guess I could of worded it differently lol, sorry.

Is the clutch cable adjusted properly?

Are you sure that you installed all of the steel plates in the same direction? There's a rounded edge and a sharp edge on the steel plates and the rounded edge should be placed towards the engine. Either way, they all need to at least be facing in the same direction.

I've moved it in every possible way. Right now, it's all the way to the left where the 12mm nut is barely catching thread.

I will check that when I tear it down. Another thing I was told to use a different torque wrench. I could be over tightening them without knowing it

Your picture clearly shows your mistake . The last fiber does not go in the same channel as the others . It goes in the short channel in the clutch basket . If you have never done this take a picture before you take it apart . FYI you should not be using a foot pound Tq wrench , but a inch pound one . Do not use harbor freight Tq wrenches as you will over Tq clutch hub .

What you did by placing the fiber in the wrong location is made the clutch stack to tall .
It now can not disengage all the way making the clutch lever noneffective. You can also see in tour picture were the original fiber made wear from contact on the basket .

FYI square edge / rounded edge side of steels does not matter like said by others .

Alright. I just took it apart. I'm going to let the discs soak in oil a little longer too. I'm assuming the one disc that is different than the others is suppose to go in this channel. Correct? I am also using a snap on torque wrench, but it is in ft/lb

Finally found out the issue. The one disc that is smaller than the others goes on the very back. My dumbass thought it was on the front. It goes around these 2 rings at the back of the clutch basket. Everything is good in the hood. Thanks everybody for your help
