Looking a bit of advice, I've fitted a new 22 tooth clutch, problem is, it feels like clutch is half engaged, when trying kickstart my bike, I'm not getting any compression flywheel just about turning. Should I have split the clutch and left it steeping in oil for a few hours.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🛵✊🏻🎯

sounds like the cable is adjusted too tight. loosen the adjuster a bit, and I bet the clutch will engage properly

Loosen the three bolts on your clutch, then try. That will tell us more.

Done that, I've pulled the clutch out, even checked the woodruff to see if it was sheered, all good
Cheers for your info ✊🏻

If you are to remove the clutch cover (or loosen the bolts) and remove the clutch cable from the clutch cover, then i would have say you really have some problems. i would think you have an internal problem with your clutch. i could only imagine your clutch either has no springs in it or no plates installed in it.

Id pull that clutch out and have a closer look. Its possibly a sheared woodruff key, or something binding internally in the clutch. Watch out for
broken bits falling down into the casing.
Just cuz its new, doesn't necessarily mean its all good. Atleast having a look, You'll known for sure

Yup. spinning on the crank would be yet another issue.

Did you try this? Some clutches and some clutch covers don't get on. The clutch slips because the cover touches the clutch as its tightened. Loosen the 3 bolts and see if it works.
