Losing Power when Hot?

Alright everyone here's the skinny.
05 600rr, 14k miles, regular maintenance no mods.

The story:
I'll let the bike warm up in the morning then head to school. Everything feels fine, it's about 2 miles to the freeway where I then ride 20 miles. I get off the freeway and wait at the stop light to turn. When it turns green I try to leave just like normal, clutch slip out/little throttle- however, instead of taking off like normal my clutch doesn't engage till a little further than before and with the same throttle input the engine will bog down and die.

I've noticed that it is consistent that if my mike reaches about 200 degrees then this starts happening- clutch is soft and engine is less powerful. Is this normal?! What should I be looking at to fix if something is wrong.

I just did an oil change today (it was normal time) with usual T6 and oem filter. so we'll see if it is any different tomorrow- but I doubt it.

Thanks for reading my novel!
