Did you just put a new cover on? When i put a new clutch in and new cover the groove cut out in the cover wasn't quite big enough. My clutch was rubbing on my new cover. If you look in the cover you will see the little factory slit cut out. Needless to say mine is quite a bit bigger now. Lol hope this helps.

well, it's a short list of items for clutch pulling.....check the hub bearing to see if it's spinning freely ,etc..........does it squeal AS soon as you apply tension or is it at the end of the stroke? or whatever?

2004 ZX10R-few mods here and there......
and even made more Evil by Woolich.
