It is possible that the first gear shift fork in the transmission is bent causing the 'dog-clutch' between two gears to just barely mesh. With engine off, push the shift into first and clutch lever released. Rock the bike back and forth to see if the gearing seems to be jumping in and out. There may be a problem with the shift lever shaft mechanism not allowing a complete shift into first gear. Hope this helps!

it will be down to adjustment, there are 2 ways to adjust one close to the engine casing and one at the lever just have to get a good balance :)

Testimonial: "Exactly what i needed to know thankyou!"

first thing. do not panic......
jumping and stalling after storage is almost normal. most of my bike will do the same, the oil and the pressure on the clutch does tend to stick the plates together slightly.
all i usually do is put the bike into a high gear (with the ignition OFF), pull the clutch in and rock the bike back and forth a few times. the engine may turn once or twice, but it will usually free off. there may still be a little bit of drag on the clutch for a few miles but this will usually clear up.
lack of power after storage is usally due to stale petrol. drain the pertol and replace with fresh.
if the bike was running ok when it was put into storage, then there is no real reason why it should not run fine now.
the problem you have now is quite simple, and i will admit that i have done exactly the same thing myself when changing clutches.
when you took the springs off the cover and removed the cover, you may have noticed that the outside of the "basket" it toothed, and the inside edge of the cluth cover has the same teeth.
when you put the cover back on, these teeth must line up and interlock for the cover to move freely. there is usually only 1 correct position for these teeth to line up, AND for the spring holes to line up as well. if there are 4 springs on the clutch, then the cover can appear to fit in 4 positions,but the teeth will not line up, and the cover will lock itself to the outer edge of the basket instead of sliding over it on the teeth.
if you look carefully, you can usually find an arrow, or a line on the cover, and a matching mark on the basket that will line up for the correct position.
if you cannot see a mark, then place the cover in each of the positions that the springs line up correctly, and on one of these positions the teeth will also mesh correctly and the cover will probably slide on another 5-6mm. this will be the correct position.
i have made this exact mistake a few times in the past and know how easy it is to do, and how frustrating it can be (and how worrying).
just reallign the cover, put fresh petrol in the tank, and after a few miles to blow out all the dust, you should be fine.
please feel free to ask for more advice if there are any more problems.
hope this helps
