Did you happen to find a fix for it yet? One thing I would check is the primary chain adjuster. If it slipped and is now too tight you would get a whirring noise.

The problem

Well, I finally got time to crack open the primary, and it shredded the clutch basket... Only 3 tabs remaining intact, after cussing , whining , and swearing not to spend another dime on it, I ordered an Evolution Industries basket.....hopefully that will eliminate that problem in the future,,,, geez.....
