Billy, I replaced the clutch in my '77 several years ago. The bike had less than 100,000 miles on it. It wasn't really that difficult. You have to be meticulously careful with removing and reinstalling the plate. They are easily cracked if you don't loosen and tighten incrementally.
I suppose I would do a clutch adjustment to ensure it is good. Maybe even drain the oil and look for some evidence of clutch material. Not sure what other troubleshooting steps would be necessary to rule out a failing clutch.
