The best thing to do is buy the full clutch kit and replace everything so you don't have to work on it again.

I bought a used 05 TRX400ER and the clutch slipped on it too. I changed the oil a couple of times, each after riding it for about an hour. That took care of my problem. You might give it a try.

Be sure you DONT use oil that has "Enegy Conserving" on the label.

Clutch kits are not that expensive, and it can be done in a few hours easy. Make sure to dip the discs on oil for an hour before install.

Get both the friction plates,and the steels(look for dimpled type,much better holding power along with longer lasting) along with new clutch springs,soak the fibers overnight in the proper 4 stroke oil,and make certain you ONLY RUN 4 stroke,wet clutch safe oil NEVER automotive type oil in it...A new right outer case cover gasket,and you should be fine unless you wish to change the timing chain,one way bearing,and oil pump rotors while you're that far in it in which case order those parts as well,and do them all at the same time,most likely never have to go back into that side of the engine again ever if maintained properly after wards...

I had a similar problem where I had acquired a 250x that has been sitting for years. After building the clutch, it fired up just fine and I drove it around without a problem. Then I changed the oil with the proper wet clutch oil and the clutch stopped working altogether. Bought a new clutch kit for about $60, and about an hour in the garage I had it installed. Everything runs good now. I would replace the clutch with a new clutch kit.
