Vz800 clutch is slipping... Upgrade options?

I have a 2004 vz800 with K&N air filters, dynojet stage 2 carb kit, and a Vance and Hines exhaust. It's also bored out to .5 over stock pistons. So here the rub, about 5 years ago I replaced my stock clutch that was slipping with a Barnett carbon fiber clutch kit, and Vesrah clutch springs. But now it's slipping in the higher gears, and getting worse. Are there better options out there for a new clutch? Is it possible to deglaze the clutch I have, or is it just time for a new one?
Apologies if this has been covered, but I couldn't find anything.

So I figured it out... I'm just an idiot... It was the 8 bolts for the clutch basket. I must not have been paying enough attention while reinstalling them cause I had the long where the short should be, and vice versa. Swapped them around and all it cost was new oil and filter! WOOT WOOT!
