Maybe try adjusting the coarse clutch adjustment? Could it be possible that the previous owner(s) kept adjusting the friction zone to tune it to their liking? Just throwing ideas out there

Do you still have the original plates around? If so, try putting them back in with the new springs. Or at least compare the thickness of the old and new. Verify the new plates are not warped, lay them on a flat surface. Also re-check that they are stacked correctly in there. stuff happens,,, 

 

EDIT:  Also might just try running it a while, get it warmed up, keep revving the motor in neutral with the clutch pulled in and see if it will release after a bit. I'm vaguely remembering mine doing some grabbing like that after replacing just the springs, but it quit after a short ride. could be my faulty memory though,,,

 

And verify the correct number of plates, no extra steel or friction plates in there?  We're also assuming it was working ok before the parts change? Like Vomio said, we're running out of ideas.

Ok So I have figured out what my problem was after I got the correct clutch plates. I was talking with my brother-in-law and he asked if I had the kickstand up when I put it in gear. Naturally I could not remember so I put the oil back in and fired it up and yep you guessed it I am an idiot lol. I want to thank everybody for your input and advice. this site is very helpful and I appreciate the help.

I did the same thing. I was so excited to fire the bike up after getting everything back together that after I fired it up I forgot to put the kickstand up. Put it in gear and "Klunk", dead. WTF?
I looked around then looked down. Oh yeah, that kickstand thingy. Never mind that the yellow light on the speedo was already telling me it was down.

LOL , it's one of those things that I just figured "Well everyone knows the stand has to be up, so it can't be that.." thoughts.. I guess you can't assume everything :) 

 

Glad it worked out!
