ok on my project 70 cl450 i got the chain back on, polished up the clutch rod, cleaned the case, regreased all, installed new clutch lever and a new ball bearing. put the shifter back on---so now i can put in gear. put it into gear and tried out the clutch. i feel the resistance and the "break over" as if the clutch is working but i still can not move the wheel. so i tried rocking it in gear with clutch pulled in and nothing. i am wondering if this is something i should tear into or do you think the plates are stuck and let the new oil sit and work on them for and while and free up? or start bike and put in gear and work clutch while on center stand? (i know not the safest but we all have done it)

Eric,
Disassembly and cleaning the plates is the correct thing to do...Plus, you can check the oil pump, and clean the filter while you are in there......Your choice....
