Thanks for the replies everyone.
I only use Suzuki recommended oil, and I clean the sprocket/clutch slave cylinder every oil change. l'll check it again and see if it's still messed up.
It would seem to me that if the slave cylinder area is clean, the only other thing that would make it slip is worn plates (at 16,000 miles?), or a broken clutch spring or two. Anything actually broken should be covered.
I took it to a dealer and he estimated $500 - $600 to replace the clutch if it's not covered. I hate to take it there if it's something I can replace myself. Has anyone changed the clutch on a V2? I haven't looked at U-Tube to see if there is anything about changing the clutch.
