Annoying as I have also just spent $850 AUD to replace the clutch basket and plates.
What could be wrong!!
Sounds like the plate stack is out of order and/or missing the cone-shaped plate, and/or the friction plates are contaminated. What brand of plates/basket did you buy? If not the DP OEM unit parts, you may have issues with the slipper action...
My OEM 1198SP slipper is smooth as glass.
