The dealer told me that it would stop slipping after a bit. Now with 10k on the clocks since the work, both the water pump is leaking again and the clutch is still slipping. I will never use that shop again and plan on doing my own work from here on out.
I fixed the garage problem by moving to a new home where I have a very nice sealed/non leaking place to keep my bikes and finally set up a proper workshop. Life is definitely better these days!
Now I gotta go remove my gas cap and fuel sensor....thanks again
Perhaps the clutch isn't adjusted properly:
