Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
It might have a "wet" clutch like my Yamaha which means that the clutch is in contact with the motor oil. If you use motor oils that have cleaners in them to remove gunk and all that bad stuff then it can cause your clutch to slip. I don't mind the clutch slip though it keeps the bike from popping a wheelie under hard acceleration :)

My 84 Honda Nighthawk had the same problem. Turns out the clutch fluid return port was plugged. It's a small pinhole in the master cylinder that bleeds pressure back to the reservoir when the clutch lever is released. Otherwise pressure builds up in the system and keeps the clutch disengaged.
