inspect the action. shimmy on down there grab the mechanism with a channel locks or prybar and see if it will move, if you can't make it move, start thinking about taking your tranny down. next inspect the slave cylinder to see if it hydraulically operative. the problem will be in the clutch cylinder, have never seen them this way, but if it is too stiff, must probably be the fork, as you've deduced....too bad~

Thx Well I took the slave cylinder out after all of it and it was holding pressure and acting the same way so I'm thinking its the slave cylinder that's malfunctioning I'm gonna try wat u said tho thank you sir
