Default Clutch question

So I was practicing cluch wheelies tonight after reading all these threads on wheelies lol. Anyways, I noticed my clutch is slipping way more than I think it should. The bike has 27000 miles and Im pretty sure its the original clutch.

How hard is it to change this out? Reason I say I think its slipping too much is that when I stopped practicing, I decided to try a power wheelie from first, hit second and then it slipped on its own. You guys conclude it sounds like time for a new clutch?

Yes definitely. I had 15k on my last bike and didn't notice the clutch slipping, but when I took it for dyno the mech said it was slipping at high rpm so it couldn't be tuned until it was changed. What are you doing wheelies for, didn't you just finish making that bike perfect? haha

haha well not quite yet. Installing an Ohlins and redoing suspension. Then itll be perfect lol. Im going back to my parking lot I was practicing in and gonna see how bad it is again. Would I need the plates and springs or can I just get plates and reuse the springs?
