Sounds like the clutch plates are sticking together. This is a common problem, some people feel it can be caused by certain types of oil. Try holding in the clutch and blipping the throttle a few times, the gradually ease the clutch out. Does this happen only on your intial clutch disingagement, or does it happen even after several starts?
