Easier test:
Get in 6th, go a steady speed, then pin the throttle. If your RPMs go up and your speed does not, your clutch is slipping. If not, it's not.

^ This.

When you slowly release the clutch, the bike should gradually start moving. If the clutch feels like it grabs all at once, it's probably going.

You don't need to go balls-to-the-wall for this test. Just bring it up to 50MPH or 60MPH in sixth, pin it, and see what it does.

Exactly what I mean. No need to break the law even while performing this test.
