Clutch slipping under acceleration...

R1200GS 2006. 40,000 miles

Wonder if anyone can help, my clutch has started slipping under above average acceleration.
I've removed the clutch to inspect, however there is plenty of life left in the clutch.

Clutch was dry, no signs of oil... I'm presuming pressure plate failure? or could this be an actuation slave cylinder issue?

Edit: The clutch lever was not hitting the hand guard.

Wow. Getting to the clutch is a lot of work.

Did you happen to pop the top of the clutch master cylinder? Was the fluid above the max level?

As the clutch wears the fluid rises in the cylinder. If you didn't reduce excess fluid (I check mine every service) the effect will be as if the clutch were partially engaged. That can cause slippage at high loads.
