Question about Motorcycles
Hydraulics seem OK and functioning, but still can't shift gears.
You have to bleed the system to get ALL the air out. Right now the clutch is still dragging and tight. Open the bleeder on the slave cylinder while someone slowly depresses the clutch pedal to get the air out, when the pedal is depressed and fluid is coming out of the bleeder, tighten the bleeder. Be sure to fill the master cylinder and keep it filled to a mark on the reservoir.

if the bleeding temporarily helps you may have a bad master or slave cylinder, check the system really good for leaks. also check that your hose isnt pinched or cracked.

if you rebuilt your carburetors you have made a mistake when you reassembled them a carb must sprsy a fine mist of "dry" fuel into the engine intake your carbs are flooding you need to check your fuel floats , jets and, don't forget to check the power piston circuit and, balance (sync) your carbs on the bike when you're done
your chuch is fine if you did not touch it

Did you do an oil change recently? Sometimes a motor cycles clutch shares the oil with the engine and a different kind of oil then the bike requires will cause the clutch to slip. This happens alot especially if someone switches to some types of synthetic oil when the bike had regular oil before the oil change.

This is one of those issues that is really tricky to diagnose over the net but would likely take a few minutes to diagnose in person.
When it does drop into gear, does it jump or stall? Will it idle in gear, stopped with the clutch pulled in?
My initial thought is that the clutch is not being fully released (the plates are still in firm contact with eachother).
More than likely, the resolution is a fairly simple adjustment.
