2001 Bandit slipping when accelerating

My bike used to slip when the bike was cold at full throttle 2,3,4 gears starting usually at 7-8 RPMs it would jump to 11-12 but continue accelerating. I recently got it rejetted a Stubb's for my akropovic exhaust and now it slips all the time (cold or not cold) and starting at 3 RPMs. Any ideas on what this might be - This will be the 3rd time I take it back to them. Again it seems like it's the transmission slipping but there's no smell and it only happens when I am hitting the power band.

Any help is appreciated!

sounds like your clutch plates are gone OR your oil may be causing it slip.

Repair?

I know this is a really general question, but how hard is it to replace the clutch - worth looking into doing it myself? I'm somewhat savvy with vehicles, but never played with engine / transmissions before. I've had some bad luck with the dealer and the prices for everything else has been insanely high.

not sure about the bandit. Changed out a few v-max (wet clutch) and a fz1 a few times.
didn't have to drain oil as long on the side stand. also i had to get another case gasket. SHOULD be able to replace the fider plates and just clean the metals with a brillo pad. unless they are trashed. keep track of the order, i also put the new fibers in a ziplock bag with some oil the night before to get them wet. also 20/50 oil makes my clutch slip abit on the v-max so i use 10/40 or 20/40
my 02.
there are service manuals on-line. download one and check it out.
later
Michael

Remember to soak the fibers in oil for 10 minutes or so before you install them.
Check the steels to make sure they're not warped, clean them with some fine grit emery cloth. Make sure to change your oil and filter afterwards.
Torque on the pressure plate bolts is 7.2 ft/lbs.
Get a new gasket.

We can get you the parts also.
