Clutch slipping briefly after gear change?

Hi All

I just bought a 2005 ZX10 from a guy who it appears didn't do much maintenance on it.

When I change gear (mainly on the downshift and most noticeably from 6th to 5th), the bike goes into gear, then as I roll on the throttle the clutch seems to slip for a second, then the gear bites again with a click.

I have also noticed that the clutch lever sometimes doesn't return all the way when I release it. It seems to stick for a moment halfway through its travel, then slowly returns to its out position.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Best wishes

cables might be pinched or need to be lubricated
