SOURCE: Clutch having hard time shifting
The problem is not the clutch. The problem is bent shift forks in the transmission. I hate to tell you this, but it will not be cheap to fix. Some special tools are needed to do the repair and working on the transmission is not recommended for the beginner mechanic. The engine comes out of the frame, gets flipped upside down then the bottom half of the engine casing gets removed to gain access to the gears, shift drum and shift forks. Your bike has three shift forks, replace them all. Contact a Kawasaki dealer for confirmation of my diagnosis and to see what the estimated cost will be. I would guess it to be around $1500. Below is a generic diagram of how the forks move left and right to shift between gears. Please, rate my answer. Thanks.
