clutch maybe going out!

I just recently started having problems with the bike... I really dont know much about the mechanics on a bike but it reminds me of when the throwout bearing on a car is going out. It makes a knocking sound but when I hold the clutch down it goes away... also it knocks when you take off....

does anyone have any ideas or at least somewhere I can take it to get looked at!

My bike did the same thing then it just started sounding like something was grinding in the motor. It ended up being a shift fork that had bent which made the knock, and then it broke and started the grinding noise. Hopefully you don't have the same problem though.

also maybe make sure your chain is at the proper tightness.
If it is major loose can have the slack smacking the swingarm when u start off.
