Clutch problem

Went to a little cook out, bonfire gathering last night and everything was great until we were heading home. Started my bike and the clutch felt a little different. It had a little free play and when I started to take off it engaged really quick and stalled. 

      I put a new rear tire on that morning and went out and rode for about an hour to make sure all was good before I put my wife on it. Now out of nowhere I have this going on. Coincidence? Anyone got any ideas?

Might be time to rebuild the clutch slave cylinder, and the master cylinder. it's a easy job, parts are cheap.

I was out on a ride and my clutch quit working on my way home.  Had to get home without a clutch.  Was not fun.   I had taken the handlebar off to install a riser and got air into the line.    I just bled the clutch and have had no more problems.   Try that before rebuilding.

If there is a little air in the line, a little trick to try is to grab a strap, pull in the clutch, and strap it to the grip overnight and that will solve that problem. What is the last time that the fluid was changed? If it's been awhile, it is quite possible that a flush and fill with new fluid will help fix it as well. And if it's been awhile on the clutch, I would guess the brake fluid is probably old as well and that should be flushed and filled as PM as well.
