Did you bleed your clutch line?

Ill bet you $2 that if you open the bleed screw it will drop down and push the rod back into the original position, “lowering” your stack.

Yep, bled when I did it, no change.

Tried removing one of the plates, it seems to behave correctly with no slipping, and rattles like it should, keeping this for now, did hard pulls with no slippage, and shifting/neutural was fine.

the 1098, etc, pack has 8 frictions and is about 41mm thick from memory. they also have a lot of 1.5mm steels, but are still thicker than the old surflex 8 friction pack.
Interesting, I'll have to count the plates and do some measurement, Thanks!
