^This. You are putting a load on a bearing that is not supposed to be loaded for any length of time, and at much higher rotational speeds and torque loads to boot. It's only meant to carry it intermittently. Not to mention you are wearing out the pressure plate belleville spring a well. The fingers are not supposed to be loaded like that all of the time, even if you are barely pushing on it. That and you run the risk of inducing clutch slip if you ride it any heavier.
