Question 7 years of trouble

or at least not so much fun so far.
Having sorted my timing problems the engine now runs like a 950 engine with SW filter and new jets, very nicely with a nice sound at WOT.
But now the clutch slips, in all but sixth gear.
Clutch lever engages almost immediately, would it be a cable operated I'd say adjust the wire and see what happens.
But no, it's not by wire but by Magura Blood.
And it slips, where do I start?
The bike's ben standing still for about 8 months.
PS I'm not a happy camper just now

its probably mad at you for not riding it for so long...

start with the basics. Bleed the clutch, and that should help with the engagement point. Pull a few clutch plates and fibers and measure them to see if they're in spec. There's not a whole lot that can go wrong in there. Might be worth checking the clutch booster ramps as well, and make sure the basket nut is tight.
