Default Recent clutch swap, hard to get out of reverse now.

So I recently did a clutch swap. Before, apart from the slipping clutch, everything was working just fine. Now, after swapping in an F1 Racing Stage 2 clutch, I find it very difficult to get into first and out of reverse when it's cold.

All the other gears work fine, and 1st and reverse are fine when it's warm.

This is a '96 5-speed.

It's not really hurting anything, it's still drivable and it's not getting worse (5 or 600 miles on the new clutch, something like that). Any idea what it could be?

Is it easier if you put it in 5th before putting it in reverse?
