My clutch bell was well seized and required a puller. I believe when I reinstalled I has to give it some love taps to seat.

Now when I turn the bike over my clutch is or isn't engaging? causing the rear wheel to rev really high.

Would I new clutch bell resolve this or do i need a clutch as well?

if your wheel is spinning then the clutch is engaged.

best to jump back in and disassemble the assembly and figure out why.

several possibilities exist here: idle speed way way too high, clutch springs are some how damaged/not functioning properly, or the driven pulley sheaves are not operating properly locking the belt and causing false engagement.

a new clutch bell is not going to fix this problem. a new clutch might, but the "why" portion of the repair equation still exists.

I've worked the idle speed nearly closed - so that's not it.

Maybe I should service the clutch? disassemble and regrease? Or maybe I didnt work the belt in deep enough on reassembly?

If the rear wheel is spinning rapidly the belt is indeed already deep enough, no?

No expert here, but I'd first inspect the clutch, compress the spring to see if that's operating freely before having at the clutch itself.
