If you have adjusted the clutch cable such that there is definitely free play in the cable and in the actuator arm atop the right side engine cover, then your clutch plates could be worn out. The slippage symptom usually first appears under high load conditions, such as climbing a hill in a higher gear.

The cost of replacing the clutch plates, besides labor, tools, and some patience, is just a new set of clutch plates, and the sealant needed to reattached the right side engine case cover.

I attached a photo of the manual transmission’s clutch area on a 2012 NC700X I worked on in the past.
