Issue after transmission output shaft replacement

I've recently replaced my output shaft on my 2009 Hayabusa, because spline were grinded off by front sprocket by a defective front sprocket. Replaced it, cases went back together with no binding. Clutch assembly was measured,oil, and reassembled in correct ordered. The clutch lever was bled with vacuum pump. Without the clutch cover on the clutch movement correct. After bike was completely assembled, put the bike in first gear to roll out of the garage. The lever felt normal, but the bike did not have that neutral feeling, it felt like their was friction somewhere in either the transmission or clutch. Still haven't turn the bike don't want to, unless I have confidence with it. Appreciate any help thanks.

you say you put bike in first gear to roll it out the garage, well that means clutch is engaged and even with clutch in will be harder to move than nuetral. turn key on, put bike in nuetral and nuetral light will come on and it will spin over and move like it should in nuetral..
