There are literally a dozen threads on this champ.
Most slippage is caused by incorrect adjustment. You must run a lot of slack. You may of already burnt the fibres out. I suggest you pull the clutch pack out and have a quick look.
I'm running the Brock Springs and top hats and no extra shims. The springs alone gave me 3 more mph down the 1/4. On the track the slipper doesn't work as well.

Yep! I adjusted my clutch like every other bike I've owned and after a few race starts it started slipping. If you leave around 6mm of slack at the perch once you start riding it goes to zero. When you accelerate with your finger on the clutch in 4th I think you can feel all the tension get taken up.
Kruz and myself have gone to extreme lengths to sort out the issues on the standard clutch. The fibre you find that burns the most is the very back one against the clutch hub.
I put new oem fibres in, Brock Springs and this seems to work quite well. If I was you I'd get the ebc clutch kit and brocks spring.
A lot of guys now are taking out the judder spring and replacing it with an early gen judder plate.
I'm not sure how much difference it makes, I doubt I'll do it but maybe next time I'm tearing my clutch out I'll have a suss.
