749 Bucci/DP slipper clutch slipping on takeoff?
I've got myself a 2003 749 Biposto (allegedly) that is now a Monoposto, with a Bucci/DP slipper clutch. Bike is pretty new to me, I guess I've had it for a few months? Its been perfectly well behaved until this morning. I went to let out the clutch and it slips a lot when starting off. It does not slip under acceleration, and it otherwise slips properly when it is supposed to slip.
I bled the clutch a few weeks ago and it has been fine until just this morning.
I've got the installation guide for the clutch, but it offers precious little info regarding troubleshooting and adjustment.
Clutch pull feels normal, but engagement is pretty close to initial lever pull, e.g. pretty far out. It was that way before and after being bled.
I guess what I am after is if there is anything I can do to adjust it before I leave my office this evening. Ill pull it apart this weekend and check stack height and everything, but first I've got to ride it 25 miles over a mountain. I have every tool imaginable at work, but I don't imagine pulling the clutch totally apart in the parking lot would be a great idea.

More at some point in the near future
