2012 GSXR 750 clutch adjust and slippage

Just bought a new to me 2012 750, with 18k miles on it. When I bought the bike the clutch was good, I changed the oil and the clutch began to slip after 8k rpms. I have experience with the older 2000-03 750 and that the worm screw at the case cover would just need an adjustment. But on the 2012 theres one in the center and three outer adjustments. Which do I adjust and what direction?

There should be 3 adjustments. In the engine cover for the slipper, at the lever arm, and at the clutch lever.

What oil did you use? Was it rated JASO MA or JASO MA-2?

Castrol 20/40 its rated JASO MA-2


So the 3 adjusters those adjust the tension on the clutch packs and not the reverse of the slipper clutch. Do I back out the screws a bit and retighten
