Default Clutch and gear shift problems after trans fluid replacement

I was referred to this forum from a member of another forum I'm on. They had good things to say about this forum, so I'm excited to be here. This is my first post.

Here's my situation:

I changed the transmission fluid in my Buell Blast and when I went to take the bike out for a ride about a block down the street the clutch lever handle became extremely loose and I couldn't shift into first gear. I was actually having trouble shifting at all. I wasn't too far from home, so I managed to make it in the gear I was in. So, I just tightened the cable from the adjuster and that seemed to fix that issue. I just got back from riding, pulled into the driveway and the gear shift lever drops extremely low. I have to get at an extreme angle just to get my foot in there to pop it back up. It still doesn't fix the problem. The gear shift lever is extremely low and I can't get the bike into neutral. I didn't have any problem before getting it into neutral.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?

For what it's worth I put in Royal Purple 70w90 trans fluid.
