Not sure how that would burn out the clutch unless you were only starting motion in 2nd gear...but, first things to check are the easy things... a good and proper clutch cable, proper lubricant level in the transmission (consider upgrading to a better gear oil), and you can pop the end-cap off the transmission to check the throw-out bearing. If that doesn't turn up anything, professional assistance may be needed.
