Make sure the hydro piston is lined up properly into the receiving cup on the clutch fork. Also on aftermarket hydros there is a black plastic spacer that can be removed to make them work on multiple applications. try removing that spacer and see if that helps. May not be fully disengaging the pressure plate

Is this a stock replacement kit or an aftermarket clutch? Some aftermarket clutches require either a different clutch fork or the removal of a spacer behing the pivot ball that the forks mount to
