Adjusted clutch to 1/3 from bar. It was still slipping so I adjusted to 1/2 from bar. Not as bad but definitely still slipping. What do you guys think?

Type of oil? Motorcycle? Automotive? I keep following this post and perhaps you answered the question and I missed it. They will slip if using oil with friction modifiers as in most oils off the shelf.

Just normal 10w40 motorcycle oil. Like maybe Mobil or something? It's definitely designed for wet clutches and is not car oil.

What's the JASO rating?

Personally, I don't think it is oil causing your slippage. You will probably want to decide if you can get the swing arm off, or if you will need to pull the motor.

Either way, the clutch is going to have to come out. The damper plate is no longer available new, so you'll need to figure out how to rebuild yours.

1200s do have hydraulic clutches, 1000s and 1100s do not.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

You can rebuild the clutch in the 1000 without dropping the motor or the swingarm.

I think I will try a new cable first before going bananas. If the clutch is on its way out, and it's a ******* to get out, then I will wait until it fails spectacularly.
