Since you replaced the basket I will assume it is a Dl 1000. I would pull the clutch slave cylinder and the front sprocket cover a d make everything is clean. I want to say I have read a post or two where the gunk was causing some binding under there. I would also inspect and replace the fluid, and inspect all the seals for leakage. That way you will flush any air in the lines if there is some.
Keep the Rubber Side Down.
