1st gear loads the clutch the least due to the mechanical advantage of the gearing. Each gear higher loads the clutch a bit more. Check your clutch cable to make sure the clutch has adequate freeplay when fully released. Make sure there are no signs that the clutch has been contaminated with oil because of a failed rear main seal or input shaft seal.
