If the freeplay isn't set right on the clutch lever, you'll wear out the plates prematurely. The G4 is particularly sensitive to this and the freeplay will change slightly when the clutch is hot versus cold. If you don't have enough freeplay in the lever adjustment to account for this, then the clutch will never fully engage and it will struggle to transmit that much power which leads to the wear. If it's slipping, then the plates are worn and will need replacing. As Dricked mentioned, the springs could be worn as well and should be checked while changing them out.
It's an easy job, especially on the G4 with the clutch well above the oil sump.
I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
