The other day I layed my bike down. When i got on it the clutch lever had a lot of play. I thought it just needed the wheel turned. Turning the wheel doesn't help at all, it has to be one #1. This morning when I left for work and shifted into 2nd and the clutch lever came all the way back to the grip and the clutch would disengage about half way out. It had very little movement. I couldn't even shift in to neutral. When I got to work I adjusted the cable adjustment out as far as it would go. I could then get neutral, but have little movement in the lever. I also noticed when I got home that the cable is frayed at the end. So I need a new cable, but does it sound like a clutch is needed too.

It's a 97 with 11,000. Rode hard and put away wet.

There is also adjustment on the other end of the cable. Look on the right side of the bike and you will see the cable housing and the clutch actuating arm. There is a nut on each side of the bracket to adjust the clutch. When a cable is about to break it will also act like that.
