If you're going to be changing the oil again anyway, you might as well do the clutch springs at the same time. These bikes are notorious for weak springs, and once you replace them (and that SHOULD be ALL you need to change), it will improve the grip in the clutch. You might also adjust the clutch cable a little. If a shop adjusted it, they tend to make it so you let the clutch out about 3/4 of the way before it even engages at all, which is a bit TOO far out IMHO. Don't adjust it too tight, though, thinking you will get better grip, because you may end up causing it to slip even MORE. (Don't ask me how I know...) Most likely, a combination of changing the oil, making sure it is NOT "energy conserving", changing the clutch springs, and adjusting the clutch cable will fix it for you.
