Problem Solver RRX Clutch

I have a 1999 RRX which is more a toy than anything and does very low mileage. In 2010 after winter storage the clutch had seized. A new full Honda clutch was fitted, an engine flush and new oil. After this years winter storage the clutch has seized again. For some part of the storage the bike was on the side stand and some times it was started for short periods, however for at least 5 months it wasnt looked at. Anyone know what the problem is apart from lack of use. I have run the bike on the paddock stand for over an hour and attempted to work the clutch and gears with no luck. Please help ?

Do you mean seized solid?
It is perfectly normal for the clutch pack to stick together when left standing, especially in cold weather.
It's just a matter of putting the bike in gear with the engine off, pull the clutch lever in and rock the bike backwards and forwards until the clutch frees up. You do not need to replace anything.
