I was not a of the OEM clutch, so I installed new adjustable levers today. Now it doesn't seem the clutch is fully engaged when I pull it. When I try to roll it back and forth in first gear with the clutch in, there is a good amount of resistance. I switched back to the OEM levers and it does the same thing.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Pics for reference

Bike is a s2r 800 btw

A clutch is engaged when the lever is out. A clutch is disengaged when you pull the lever in. Bleed the clutch and try again. Check for moisture or peeling paint around the slave cylinder. That would be a sign that it’s leaking and may not lift the pressure plate far enough.

Thanks. I'll definitely try it when I get back from work. I've changed levers on a few bikes and never had this problem. But again, none of them had a wet clutch.

I don't believe (hoping) this is the issue. I was able to ride the bike fine before I changed the lever and roll it into my garage with the cluch disengage with no resistance (used the wrong term before, haha :laugh:).
