    Generally when the clutch slips and the adjustment in the center doesn't take care of it, then it's time to replace the clutch. Recheck the adjustments again and see if it helps. If it was an aftermarket clutch with the spring setup, adjusting them may give you some additional life before changing the discs.

    Difficult to say without knowing what clutch it is. I would try 1/4 turn but get them even on all if you do. Nothing to loose at this point.
