Your slippery clutch may be cured with the cheapest Walmart 20W50 Supertech oil. Change the oil and drive it a while and change it again. That cured my XJ650 slippery clutch. The inline 4 cylinder 1970s and 1980s engines all have the same wet clutch. Any slippery additives in the oil makes the clutch slippery. Only use plain oil with no friction additives.

Brakes are your life. Don't ride it until you fully recondition the calipers and master cylinders.
