What's this noise coming from? Clutch?

If I slip the clutch a little more than normal from a dead stop, I can feel a drag in something and hear a noise, almost like the front brakes are grabbing.

What could that be?

Arrrhhhh. I hate this. Mine does this as well and it is absolutely awful. You might have glazed it a bit (which is why mine does it.)

what the Ducati clutch is making noise, oh my gowd!

Just open the cutch and blow all the dust out of it, and have it check out you might need new plates, but sorry for my smart comment but come one all Ducs make that noise if not just sell it and get a BMW.
