So thanks to a local rider I got my hands on some extra 1.5mm driven plates. I added two to the stack for about 38mm total height. This resulted in a fair bit of clutch drag (rear wheel spins when on a stand in first with clutch pulled, neutral near impossible to engage, big clunk when shifting into first).
I bled the clutch to be sure that wasn't the problem, it made no difference. The clutch lever actually hits what feels like a hard stop about 1/4" before touching the bar, so something is bottoming out before the clutch is fully disengaged with the 38mm stack.
However a quick road check verified no more slip.
I then removed one of the extra discs for a total stack of 36.5ish mm. This solves the clutch drag issue, everything is back to normal. It got too late to check for slip though.
I have an aftermarket slave on there, not sure what brand. The engraving looks like "PI" or "IP"?
What could be the issue here? Is the slave bottoming out, and if so, why is the clutch not fully disengaged at that point? Is my clutch rod too short somehow?
Edit: ... Or maybe too much axial play in the drive shaft?
