Question about Motorcycles
Clutch slipping when engine warm. have replaced clutch and slave cylinder and still slips
If the clutch has a cable system and not a hydraulic clutch system, the cable is probably adjusted incorrectly. If the system is hydraulic(applies to cable systems also), the steels in the clutch pack are probably warped and should be changed. If the steels in the clutch pack are black and blue they arre probably warped and should be changed.

It sounds to me like you have air getting into the clutch system. Check to make sure all your fasteners are tight and that there is not a bad gasket in the reservoir or slave cylinder.
When bleeding the clutch system, make sure to put a loop in the drain tube above the bleeder valve to prevent air from getting back into the clutch system.
By the way, if your slave cylinder were leaking, you would notice the leak. Take a white paper towel and run along bottom of the slave cylinder area. If it's leaking bad enough to empty the hydraulic fluid (DOT 4) from the clutch reservoir, then it would get air into the clutch system.
Hope this helps. If you find this information useful, please vote on this post. Thank You.

if the bleeding temporarily helps you may have a bad master or slave cylinder, check the system really good for leaks. also check that your hose isnt pinched or cracked.

Your clutch plates have lasted 25 years. It is probably time to get some new plates. Have your dealer get you a set of Barnett clutch plates.

Ya know what I had the same problem and I changed the clutch discs and plates ,problem still persisted.
Replaced the master cyl piston and such ,problem still persists.Took apart the slave cyl and now ordered the kit for that and noticed that the clave cyl had a film of dirt and rubber on the side wall I think that this comes from lack of service mainly changing of fluids.The brakes ,front and back are next for me.
Remember to be patient when bleeding air.Try opening the resivoir cap pull clutch handle ,tie it off and walk away for 2 days .worked for me after a test of my patients for 3 daysm
