Re: Clutch maybe?
Have you lubricated the clutch actuating parts? The cam inside the sprocket cover, the bucking bar, or pin that protrudes from the center of the sprocket and the ball bearing that goes in behind that pin?
They all need to be greased. It sounds like something is binding and keeping the clutch engaged. Not normal but if they haven't been lubricated the parts mentioned above can give you problems.
