clutch problem

I just replaced my clutch basket, along with doing the valves.
Put it all back together, new oil and coolant. Bike runs good, but when I put it in gear, it won't go. Acts like it's still in neutral. My smeller sucks, but I think I smelled something. Mayby oil on the exhaust I missed?

So, what did I do wrong?

From what I've read, the clutch pushrod was put in place crookedly, and has caused a misalignment in the clutchplate pack. Let me see if I can find some posts relating to this.

problem solved. I hadn't seated the pressure plate properly.
