First, check the clutch lever free play. If that specs out then remove the clutch cover and inspect. Do the basic stuff, measure the pressure plate and clutch plates for warpage, inspect the basket for notches, measure the thickness of the friction plates.

And perhaps most importantly based on your description check the spring height. On the XR80 since it's typically a little iron pig that tends to see little maintenance and lots of abuse I always replace the springs and both metal & fiber plates.
