Dont know if my clutch is slipping

Hi Guys

Ok so im new and i am dumb at this shit but it is conserning me abit
i have a 2011 ZX10R with abt 11000km on the clock

this weekend i went riding and around 8 to 9000Rpm when i bang it it felt like my clutch was slipping in 4th and 5th gear now my Rpm jumped so this automaticaly tells me clutch is a gonner or so i think

my lever has almost no free play can this be the problem? or do you think it is friqtion plates that is a gonner i have done maby 2 burnouts with the bike in total and use my quick shifter almost always so can it be that the burnouts caused this but i have to say befour the slipping the burnout took place well around 9000km on the clocks so 2000km without no problem?

i dont drag the clutch hevy on pull off so i dont know

maby it is just time for a new one what do you think?

Sounds like probably the clutch mate. Only one way to find out, pull it apart and inspect your fibers/plates.

if the cable is too tight then it can slip. adjust the free play.
