Half the time I'll just hit the start button with the clutch pulled and a hand on the brake.
The bike lunges a little then the plates get loose and all good then.

If I park the bike, fire it up an hour or two later, it may do that.
But there is still residual oil between the plates is why I don't believe oiling them will change anything.
pulling in the lever does nothing (besides allowing me to shift through the gears a little easier....clutch is not fully disengaging....my bike remains in gear nudging forward or reverse...I will not attempt to start my bike while it is in gear....I will however try to shift into first after it is running (tomorrow).....I will let you know if I have figured out the problem....even if I have to remove clutch plates for inspection.....I never had an issue with my clutch before I changed out the transmission.....I don't know how much clearer I can describe this issue.

It was just unclear to me if the clutch was not contracting or not releasing.
I understand now.
I don't see a reason why replacing the tranny would change the way the clutch acts.
Clutch mechanicals are on the outside of the tranny.
So it could be something in the clutch pack I suppose.
It's just odd that it worked fine before removal and not now.
The only factor that would have changed would be the cable adjustment.
Assuming the basket and ramp assembly weren't damaged.
I'd definitely like to see an update..... interesting.
