Default Unsticking a Clutch?

The motor that I used in my frankenquad project has been sitting unused in its prior frame since the end of last summer. I got it into its new frame, wired up, and running, but my clutch is stuck engaged. The clutch cable is way too easy to pull, and it is currently adjusted for its full range. Its not disengaging at all. I know this is most likely caused by it sitting for so long, missing a quart of oil for part of it. I've already tried rocking it, and I've tried riding it briefly, with no success in freeing the clutch. I've only taken it in 1st and 2nd gear, and only on soft gravel.

Does anybody have some advice? I know I can just pry the clutch plates apart, but I'd rather do it the fast/easy way. I may try running it down the road and getting on the gas, brake, and clutch simultaneously, or just goosing the gas a lot going up a paved hill with the clutch held.

If anybody has some words of wisdom or warning, I'd appreciate it.

Sounds dangerous but fun. I may try that, or something similar.
