clutch problem on FZR600R

Hi guys new to the forum, can anyone help me? i changed the C&S on my bike and now it seems that the clutch doesn't work, it changes gear on the stand and the wheel spins in all gears but when i come to ride it there is not enough drive to move forward. it was working fine before i changed the C&S. Went to my local yamaha dealer and there was no mechanic to speak to so i am still in the dark, can any one help me. cheers Rich.

1. Did you soak the plates in oil overnight before the installation?
2. Check the clutch cable adjustment?
3. Were the correct springs installed?
Either of these things can lead to a slippy clutch.

Easy fix, but could be one of 2 problems.

1. on your bike the pressure plate only goes one way correctly. There is a dot on the basket that aligns with a mark on the pressure plate. Simply remove the clutch cover, clutch springs and rotate the pressure plate until alighted.
2. Its been a while but I think this bike had an adjustment for the push rod, if the stack height of the plates is different then the adjustment could be way out keeping pressure off the plates.
