I can't help other than mention that like brakes, clutches that have to work hard and deal with lots of heat are often upgraded to ceramic friction material and sometimes the performance of a multiplate clutch can be improved if an extra plate can be added to the basket.
It might also be possible to upgrade the springs.

I haven't heard of a friction modified oil since the one Sternol developed for use in the Hayes automatic transmission and that was a very long time ago.
Like you I don't like the idea of such a thing being used in an engine...

early models have a big chain drive between the engine and the trans that is internal.It is probably lose and needs to be replaced. Latter models use Gears.
