Clutch is slipping

Need advice seems like clutch started slipping today..My K1200RS 2003 has 23,435 miles on it...Was riding on BRP went to pass some slower traffic and as I applied more power bike started to pick-up then rpm,s went up it was like rear tire was slipping but as I backed off throttle bike responded...I was in 4th gear at the time...I tried a few more times 4th,5th and 6th same thing I'm sure clutch is slipping..Lever seems to be releasing almost all the way out...What am I looking at here....

Sounds like clutch. You may have a seal leak which has put oil on the clutch and it's now 'toast' . Take off the underbelly pan, clean everything and look for oil leaks. Standard clutch test is open throttle in a high gear 5th or 6th from a low speed and watch the tacho. Sounds like your bike passed the test for a new clutch.

Read up previous and archive posts. Make sure engine seals and clutch slave cylinder are replaced at the same time. You are looking at spending a lot of bucks unless you are competent to do most of your own work yourself.
