Clutch problem, new plates


Dear,
I have following problem with my clutch.
I've just bought a set of ferrodo friction plates. This plates are just the same as my old plates, same thickness, same everything.
So ... I removed the old plates, measured the stack height. I measured the stack height with the new plates. This was the same.
Ok, so I put the new plates in, put the pressure plate on. But there was still a bit of space (approx. 2mm). I started the engine, but when I put it in gear en released the clutch, the bike didn't move, because of this left over space.
My question: How is this possible, i put the complete clutchpack in with the same stack height as before. Why is this clutch not filled out as before?

You can put an additional steel plate or two in to take up the gap.

I know I can fill this space up with an additional plate, but that is not a real solution.
I want to know why there is a gap now, that wasn't there in the first place.
Could it be, something to do with the axis that goes through the engine to de clutch slave cilinder. That this isn't well fit or so? I haven't dismanteld the clutch slave cilinder yet, but that would be my next step.

Did you align the pressure plate correctly?

Ok, I found the problem.
I disconnected the clutch cylinder, then installed al the plates, and everything seemed ok.
Than removed de filler cap of the clutch and gently put the clutch cylinder back on. Fits like a glove. So this weekend I'm out for a drive with my hyper.
