Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, proposed preliminary attempt (if have not been tried) is to check/adjust the free play of the clutch lever and/or lessen the slack at the clutch cable end.
Perhaps the video tutorials at the links below may shed further insight.
All others would point to a slipping clutch and may need replacement/internal engine work.
