I understand from your symptoms that you are losing clutch fluid...but not from the handlebar area?
If you've excluded the master cylinder, and the flexible hose from the master to the rigid clutch line, your next step is to inspect the rigid line to ensure that IT is not leaking anywhere between the front flex hose and the rear flex hose, as well as from the the flex hoses themselves. IF all those items fail to produce your leak, then it must be in the slave cylinder. You can find it on the very rearmost part of the transmission cover, pretty much in the middle of the aftmost portion of the engine/tranny case. It's easy to find if you've followed the clutch line to its end, it terminates at the slave cylinder. You can remove it quite easily from underneath, rebuild or replace it as you see fit. This particular unit is quite easy to rebuild.
Keep the rubber side down.
