One thing you can check is the two ports in the bottom of the master cylinder for the clutch. You can poke a stiff bristle, or something similar, in them to see if they are clear. Use a poker that is softer than the parent metal. Also, if you see black floaties in the fluid, it is time for a system rebuild.
These ports being plugged may cause the symptoms as you describe.

Probably the clutch is fine, but the spring is worn. Replace it with a Drifter spring.

Drifter spring?...........I thought the Mean Streak spring was the hot ticket? Correct me if I am wrong.
