We'll I got the arrow on the clutch cover to line up with the dot but now the bike seems to be very stiff through the gears just trying it out with the bike off rolling the bike through the gears is that the way it's supposed to feel. Let me know so I can pour the oil in the bike. If it's not supposed to feel like this and I got to start over don't want to waist good oil

I've always noticed new clutch plates are stickier when new. So I've seen what you're describing. Did you soak the new plates in a pan of oil before installation? That usually helps but is still stiffer than your old ones. They are after all new so will have more friction. How that helps.
