    Unscrew the bolts holding the clutch cover. Unscrew the small screw holding the flower nut. Unscrew the flower nut. The Clutch plate should come off and expose the pads. Try cleaning em with brake cleaner to fix any grease related slipping. You might have to just turn the flower nut a notch though, try both.
  3. Why Do't you try spray silacone,no mess and wont hold dirt and grime as bad, K.

    I had a problem with my clutch recently and found that the clutch plate had become mega smooth causing slippage. The actual clutch pads are still fine. I just ran the clutch plate over a grinder to lightly rough up the surface and now its fine.
