On the old FZRs, a suddenly noisy & heavy clutch was an indicator that the push rod had snapped. This was generally caused by insufficient free play in the cable, resulting in the throwout bearing welding itself to the push rod.

I realise these machines use a rather different mechanism, but the failure mode would be the same. The cure is also the same - tear the clutch down, and inspect the throwout mechanism.
