Clutch slipping on a 2004 Bonnie

Got the bike with around 5,200 miles on it and after one summer it still only has a little over 8,000 miles on it

the clutch feel like it is slipping at high revs, usually if I roll half throttle or more above about 4,500 rpm's

seems fine under those R's

The low miles have me a little freaked about the clutch slipping already but I suppose this would be the time to admit that the symptoms started the day after some showoff burnouts so I probably cooked the clutch through my own stupidity - did I mention I also need a new tire?

if I need to replace the plates is this a weekend wrenchers type of job

Never cracked the case on a Triumph before so I really don't what I am in for or if I need any special tools.

Is there any chance that your clutch cable has come out of adjustment, or is hanging up, for any reason? Dumb for me to ask, since you've probably already checked it.
