Slipping to won't stop pulling

Ok gurus help replaced clutch fibers and springs checked the steels on glass and sanded them still see the dimples. Tare down reveals nothing special 3 fibers torn up fairly well but considering the amount of slipping I thought as much. Now with new fibers and springs it won't release no slip.Was thinking maybe bleed clutch well bled and cleaned replaced fluid, same results. so I thought maybe while I was talking to my buddies and drinking beer, I installed fiber to fiber. Next day tare down and no mistakes ? So I try installing old springs thinking coil bind same results double check steels one warped maybe .002 tops. Installed 2 old but good fibers and got the back wheel to slip some once lever pulled. Once completely reassembled tried riding with brake to hold, still pulling hard . where do i look next? I'm pulling beard hair as I'm already bald! I need my wind Wheely fix, had to wait 10 days for parts now 4 days on searching for problem.

Did you put too many plates in???? Missing parts? I hear alot of people having this trouble out of 1800 clutches. I mostly hear them talk about rocking the bike in gear and other stuff..........I like to see the pressure plate move before putting the cover back on but too late for that.......

Thanks Hefty and yes plate moves but not enough when the springs are torqued down. Counted 8 fibers and 7 steels 6 springs. Really have done this b4 with no problems on other bikes ive had and helped friends do theirs too. That's kind of what's got me looped on this one. Just watched a video on Youtube that had a broken stud. The input or output drums. But was hoping that someone knew more than a 2 minute video or could say that it was a good chance that was it.

There is a spec for the stack height. Might be time to check that. Might be someone sent you the wrong parts.

have you tried to BLEED the system...
you may have gotten a small air bubble inserted into system doing service..


also did you OFF SET last fiber???
I am guessing when you say fiber to fiber.. that is a misprint.... YES????? fiber/steel/fiber/steel.. etc.

Last August I had a similar situation, although I hadn't recently been into the clutch. I rebuilt/replaced both the master cylinder and slave before finding I had a broke one of the rivets that hold the inner drum to the outer. When I first pulled the cover I could not see it but, as soon as I rotated the assembly it became obvious is was out of whack.

Are you bottoming out on the springs? Not getting full throw? Sanded steel are going to be grabby for a short while. A clutch is pretty simple system. You either move the plates far enough away from each other or not.

Ok in order Harkon that's what I'm feeling so I need to get those stats and a micrometer. Thanks chuck vex f yes I bled the clutch when replacing the old fluid and also offset the last fiber and no that's not a misprint that's what I thought I had done after the clean fluid was bled through the system.. Thanks. Now jimbo this is the video I saw on Youtube. when you rotated the outer drum was there a lot of rotation like a 1/4 turn with a loud clunk at either end of the spin? This is where I think the problem is. Again thanks think between this and the original post I've covered everything at least once that I've done so far. Oh wait not sure about the torque wrench , do the spring bolts bottom b4 they get to 9 lbs or is the beam messed up on this wrench?
