I'd pull the clutch cover and check out your clutch basket. The fingers of the outer basket where the clutch plates ride are grooved and the plates hang up. If they're not too bad you can file them smooth and get some more use from the clutch basket. If they are deeply grooved you may need a new basket.

Clutch Siezed

I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY KDX 200.
moisture was getting in my tranny from behind the counter sprocket,the spacer behind the sprocket had wore down and let some water in and it would cause my clutch pack to rust and stick together. check your clutch plates for any signs of rust. check your oil any moisture, could be the cause.

I would guess clutch basket/hub are notched so the plates can't release all the way. It's not at all uncommon.
