If your sprag clutch is slipping, you can try to flush you engine.
If you don't want to go this way, this engine has to be taking off the bike in order to access it. (The clutch housing has to be removed).
Starter trouble 34

Hi MarkR,
Try draining the engine oil, fitting a new filter and refilling with premium quality diesel engine oil like Shell Rotella or Rimula and go for a really long hot ride. That should clean up the engine safely and should hopefully loosen off the sprag clutch. Try using the diesel oil for several oil changes to thoroughly clean it out, remember as our K clutch is outside the oil there is no worry about the effect of the oil on the clutch.
Regards,
K-Bike
