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
I wish I had bought a GSA a long time ago
and now I drink Orange Crush as well, thrice up now, two 990 Adv and a 950 SER

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.
