In many bikes the clutch work in oil and if you use an very good oil like sintetics with may be can cause a slipage clutch not when it is a new one but whne it have an use inportant the discs are more thin and the antifriccion oil can cause slipage more in the better oils like sintethics.

SOURCE: valve clearance check
the only time i would worry about getting the clearance on the valves checked is if the bike starts acting up there is no need to break the gasket seal just to check something that is probably alright anyway

SOURCE: oil blowing out of exhaust
Run it out, The oil has collect in the exhaust media and baffles. Iver fill can cause this proble. As long as it has oil in it, run it out (burn it out) If the oil is low when you ck it, and that should be often, Then note it. Valve guide wear is progressive and the engine would smoke. Keep the oil level proper and take it on a mellow ride, no hard throttling. You should see an improvement after about 20 miles down the freewayat 60. Just stay alertand pay attention to the sound of the motor. Good luck and let me know when you get back.
