I know it's kind of dumb but this is one reason that I really like to pull the motor for this job there are a few places that clips and shims like to get hung up on the crankshaft when you are working on the motor in a vertical orientation.

The shimming should not have changed from what you did so take it all apart and pay really close attention when you are sliding the splined washers that go between the clutches on the crankshaft.

It could be a few different things but the most likely culprit is that the splined washer that goes against the second gear clutch didn't set into place quite right and it is bound up. You can give the clutches a little wiggle by hand and feel then get tight as the nut gets tight on the crank, but the second gear clutch should still spin freely.

You can also turn the flywheel on one side as you tighten up the side cover to identify binding due to insufficient end play clearances .

You really got to pay attention as you put these together and make sure everything is settled into place. Print out the page from the manual and make sure all the shims and stuff are in the right places.
