Default CBR 1000F clutch slip

Howdy, I have an 88 model and the clutch slips under hard acceleration. Seems to get better as the engine warms up. Is this likely to be the engine oil?
Cheers.

If it started playing up after an oil change then i would say yes it's the oil, if not check freeplay if its a cable clutch, otherwise i think it's going to be new plate's

I'd agree oil is the possible cause..Change the oil to 15w40 mineral oil, mostly marked diesel these days also change the filter..you may have to do this twice to get all the additives out..

It's a hydraulic clutch, not had much experience with them.
