Sounds like the clutch. Does the clutchbell have any blueing on it indicating that it got really hot? Either way the clutch shoes are probably shot and the clutchbell should be roughed up on the inside with sandpaper or replaced.

I was thinking the clutch on the engine but the slipper clutch could be suspect too.

Ts slipper clutch can be adjusted, have a read of your manual (CEN should have an online version) for more details on that. The clutch on the engine can be adjusted, but this is done with different strength springs. If the clutch on the engine is bad you'll likely see blueing on the clutchbell indicating excessive heat. Check for this and remove the clutch (pull the engine) before ordering parts though.
