I went through my purchases history and I noticed that where I bought the clutch it actually says 1987-2014, I thought it said 1985, I still need to ask but could that be the problem?

I might do clutch replacement again and these seem good

I suspect your issue is incorrect assembly of the clutch. It is apparently not releasing at all. Remove the springs and check that the pressure plate is then loose. When you put the sidecover on, verify the clutch lever has some slack in it before it becomes tight.

Does the clutch lever pull way too easy or did it seem like you had to fight to get the springs on?
