Your starter clutch can be tested by trying to rotate it in both directions. It will turn one direction, and lock up the other direction. If your motor starts every time without problems, it's prolly good.
Your clutch slipping can be as easy as needing to be adjusted. Check the lever on the motor clutch case, You want about 1/18in free play. You'll need to adjust the cable and lever on the bars to get the free play. Your manual explains how.
