Should have gone for a standard or oem clutch assembly. Why didn't you?

Yes sorry I though you bought a stage 2 kit or something. Like a competition clutch. OK. Did you change it or a garage?

haha no problem its prob cos i said 3 piece lol my mistake

i provided the clutch setyres fitted it,

thinking its bit of a problem with the release bearing although its new when i push clutch all way down REALLY hard it releases more

also i feel like a drag sometimes at various speeds also there is like literally 2cm movement before the clutch kicks in its that fierce

kinda pi55ed me off tbh

The thrust release bearing might need lubing on the shaft or isn't on the fork properly. Or maybe the clutch itself is not fitted correctly? Think you should take it back to the garage and say it is not right. Should be a nice light pedal and a very smooth action if it is a new oem type clutch.

Should not be harder to push... Something is not right.
