hard to shift, bad clutch?

ok, have a 83 aspy. , having difficult shifting mostly 1st to second especially when bike warmed up. shifts fine when engine not up to operating temp. could it be my clutch going bad? it's got a good friction zone, just hard to shift up or down when warmed up.

Was the front cover recently removed to change the waterpump?
