Last couple of days when it give it full throttle at about 5000rpm it takes off until 6000rpm then you can feel the engine race to about 6250 with no increase in speed which carries on climbing, each time it happens I back off the throttle, as dont want to destroy her just yet, and she gradually resumes speed increases. Have also noted a smell of a clutch burning.

Drive belt is 6k miles old, age of bike is 2008 and total mileage is 42500.

Have changed a belt before, not changed a clutch on belt drive. Reluctant to get into a clutch, has anyone done one, if so what to watch out for ? Is 42k about right for a belt, I know the engine is good for 50k plus, what about the transmission ?

Clutch shoes are easy to replace.

Lock up the rear wheel (parking brake &/or zip tie left brake lever). 22 mm socket removes the Driven Pulley assembly. Flip it over and the clutch shoes are there. Remove the springs with a spring tool. Remove the retaining clips & plate and pop off the shoes. Be sure to lube the driven pulley needle bearing before reassembly.

Be sure too to inspect the clutch bell too. If scored you'll need to replace. That's going to be  the difficult job.

Use the Search function to find a recent post about removing the clutch bell without using Honda's special tool.

As Cosmic Jumper stated.  If you can do belt the clutch shoes  are not much more work.  
If clutch drum is damaged that's a bit more that needs some real tools to pull drum.

Shoe kit about $65 US   SW doesn't have a transmission but has a rear differential should last  much longer than engine no reports of failure that I've read about .[url=]time for a clutch ? Img_2019[/url

Driven pulley removed one nut and it's off. clutch shoes....
