SOURCE: Hayabusa engine griding sound

If you have done 14,500KM since the noise started there can't be a whole lot wrong. They are noisy engines anyway - might be normal. Only thing I can suggest is to check under your clutch cover.

SOURCE: racing idle

This is an air problem. You have an air leak(s) between the carb(s) and the cylinder. This leans the fuel mix and causes the racing problem. Rubber / plastic seals, "o" rings and manifold ducts get old and cracked and just don't seal well at the clamps any more.

SOURCE: clutch is sliping on third gear and the lever is

Make sure you aren't using an incompatable oil, wet bath clutches need engine oil to be compatable. Most synthetics will cause slip in taller gears due to added load. Lower gears usually won't slip but 3rd and up will.

SOURCE: 2000 suzuki rm 125 have done a complete rebuild on

look for grooves or dents in the clutch basket, that would be holding the disks apart, also make sure the disks all face the same way out.

Poulan 18.5hp 42in cut deck 6 speed drive belt not broken woz loose but when i spin rear wheel the drive pully duz not spin if i hold it is the ckuth worn out or should this work like this

The clutch works on centrifugal force, so when the engine ticks over the drive is not engaged. As the engine speeds up the drive engages.

What's going on with my clutch?

Could be air in the system. Try bleeding it (as you would your brakes) if nothing else it will give you fresh fluid for the future.
You don't say which bike, but is your oil level ok and is the correct oil being used?
Check the push rod that activates the clutch mechanism (behind the slave that is attached near the gearbox). Sometimes these gum up with road grime and don't operate as freely as they should.
That is the cheap quick check without spending much. Other than that it may actually be a clutch plate or spring issue and that will cost you more.
