Need some help trouble shooting

so, my bike sounds like it pinned out in every gear im in. possible think my clutch is engaging/disengaing properly. i think this because with the clutch in my bike still pulls pretty hard. i'm a noob so dont burn me bad on this. just really need some advice. also when i start my bike in the morning it sounds fine. but, after shes been rode and then shut off when i restart she makes a horrible fast clicking noise.

i realize what ^^^ there made almost no sense. pretty much what happens is in any gear i can wrap the throttle and it just revs doesnt really go any where. any ideas on whats going on would be much appreciated.

Do you have a prime? Are you leaving it on the entire time you ride? Maybe you need to lower your idle. At least those are the simple fixes... I'm sure somebody can help you, but they're probably going to have to see/hear it.

The issue with the ticking is most likely the cam chain tensioner, those old cbr600 needed a manual tensioner because the stock ones sucked big time! APE makes a good one and installing them is not to expensive. As for the clutch, watch your tach, if the tach revs high after you apply heavy throttle but your forward momentum does not match you have a problem.
You can also put it in 3rd gear, hold the front brake and apply throttle and let the clutch out slowly. The bike should die when the clutch hooks up, if the rpms just keep climing and the bike does not die quickly then again, you have a problem.

this is exactly what happens the rpms keep going but forward momentum not so much(by that i mean it pops up about a mile or two). i cant really watch my tach because i dont have one. lol
