One the left-hand side of the bike (facing forward), there is cover plate just ahead of the drive shaft. Remove that cover (mine has 8mm bolts). The bleeder valve is under this cover. Go to an auto parts store and get a "one man bleeder kit" or if you have some plastic tubing that will fit over the valve, you can use that and a clean jar. Follow the instructions on the bleeder kit, or if you're using the jar and tubing, fill the jar about a quarter of the way with break fluid (use DOT4, but never DOT5!). Take the cover off the master cylinder up at the handlebars, place the tube over the end of the bleed valve (after loosening it a turn or two. Place the other end of the tube down in the break fluid in the jar. Work the clutch lever until you stop getting bubbles in the jar. Be sure to keep the fluid level up in the reservoir. Tighten the bleeder valve, remove the tubing, top off the fluid and replace the covers.
Be careful not to get brake fluid on anything. It will eat paint and mess up other things.

Do a gearbox oil change. Then do another one 50 miles later. This should flush out the dirt and grit currently in the gearbox. You may want to invest in a new clutch cable also. 10w40 motor oil.

You don't really need to check the gearbox oil level in 2-strokes. Once you put the correct amount in, it should be fine until the next oil change. Gearbox oil is not consumed by the engine, so only a leak (which you'd notice) could cause the gearbox oil level to drop.
The 2-stroke oil (stored under seat) is what the engine consumes, and gives the characteristic blue smoke.

you can NOT use a friction enhanced oil in these bikes, as they are wet clutches. the circle on the oil jug can not have friction reducer (or similar verbage). you may have to totally drain your bikes oil & put in 15W40 (auto oil is fine, just can NOT have friction reducer)

The clutch springs are not the problem. Check to see if all parts were installed as shown below. The clutch plates alternate Fiber/steel/fiber/steel, starting and ending with a fiber. Be sure the teeth on the clutch rack are pointing to the rear.
