Clutch noises

Installed a Scorpion clutch and basket, now clutch makes a ' scrimping' sound when released, only does it when pulling off from a stop... It doesn't slip, just makes the sound, it appears as though it's coming from the primary, any thoughts on what to look for...?

2011 Vivid Black RG Custom, 117ci, Yaffe bars, D D Boarzilla, Alpine PDX F-6, 6.5 Alpine R's up front (4) and 6x9 R's in bags, Paul Jr- Rapture Wheels 23/17, monotubes w/ 1" drop, SMT contrast boards and bag latches, Daymakers. 6* PICKARD TREES, rides like its on rails....I'm through, not spending another dime....

That's The scorpion trade mark sound. I messed with mine for months and talked to Barnett several times and did what ever that told me to do. You know what fixed it? Pulling it out and junking it. If you just bought it pull it out and send it back for a refund. It's not going to get any better.

Also after 1500 miles the adjustment was non existent. I couldn't find neutral no matter what fluid or adjustment. They tried to tell me it was my clutch cable. Funny thing is it works perfect with my stock clutch and a SE spring and a VP hat.
