Default Slipping Clutch?


.
Alright guys, so I bought a new friction discs, new steel plates and the clutch springs,
.
I'm not 100% sure on how tight I should've set the springs or most of it
.
but for some reason, I'm not getting any power to the back wheel, its mostly likely a clutch issue because trans gives a kick when I switch gears and when I start the bike it give a kick forward ...
.
I'd appreciate any response, I really don't want to leave it at a shop and have them do work I could do
.
Seems a bit arrogant yes but I'm tight on cash mainly
.
Any input is greatly appreciate, I don't want to burn the new discs
.
I use 20w50 motorcycle oil but soaked the friction plates in pennzoil 10w40
.
Not sure if my smartest move or a save
.
Thank you for reading

Do you have the factory repair manual? I have not opened up mine, so I am not sure where your issue is.

There is a trick about putting the most outer plate in a special manner.
