Tonight I took it apart, removed the old friction plates and clutch plates, inspected the clutch boss and basket, and replaced the plates and springs. The push rods also seemed to be working normal but I did not remove or inspect the longer rod. I put the bike back together, but I still can't get the clutch to disengage. The clutch pull is no different than before. Anyone experienced this before??? Any advice on what might be broken is appreciated.
I plan to go out and get a clutch tool tomorrow so I can remove the boss and basket and see if something is broken behind them. Any tricks on getting the locking tab on the center nut pushed down without scoring the clutch boss??? This rookie mechanic needs a little help.

A thousand thanks! The washer trick worked. Thanks for the link. I wish I knew about it earlier. Probably wouldn't have popped for a new clutch kit. Oh well. All is new and its as smooth as butter.
