No cold starts in South Florida!. Hot, hot, hot!!!
Before this issue I was able to start the engine in 1st gear with the clutch engaged.
I can't do that no more. I don't know if this is related to the clutch problem or if it is a sensor failure.

|Wavey Dave||My Shirley's clutch began slipping with only 40 thousand miles on her. I used a Barnett clutch kit (very difficult to get the MTC in the UK) I used the barnet springs (slightly longer and stronger) and friction plates But I used the original honda steels, I gave them a brush over with some emery paper where they were blued. The clutch is now well and truly sorted. At 80 000 miles I would replace the clutch but do check your steels before replacing. You will find a world of difference.|

If the steel plates have any bluing on them that means they have gotten too hot and should be replaced.
If it were me I would replace the whole clutch setup.
Is that 80K miles on the original clutch??? If so, replace everything.
Keep us posted what you find and do.

|Chicago-Spike||Yes, that's clutch slipping and it will only get worse. Time for new/better springs and friction plates|

The OEM springs were the problem.
Amazing that you have that many miles on it and now having the problem.
Most go with MTC or Barnett clutch kits.

Only small issue is some clutches stick a bit to the plates at cold start.
Mike the steels and check them for being flat.

|rangers4u||Before going that route, maybe just change your oil? A good motorcycle only oil like Mobil 1 4T Racing 10W40 may just do the trick. If not, then I would look at new discs plates and springs.|
