I put in 350cc of 75w putoline light gear oil.

Clutch is sensible to correct specs. Lots of info on this forum so wont go into this. Search for finger hight and pack thickness and you will find your way:)

75w light gear oil is pretty thin, so I wouldn't worry about that. The GG only takes 350 - 400mL (370 will get you right to the middle of the sight glass if you drain it hot and tip the bike to get everything out). 

I think you're in the US. My recommendation would be Silkolene light gear oil or plain old ATF.  If the belray is motorcycle specific I wouldn't expect it to cause the issue with slipping. Assuming that's the case, pull the clutch out and measure it. It should be between 9.85 and 10.05mm. If it's way under the low end of the spec, that's your problem. Time for new plates. It won't be much over, because if it was the clutch would be rock hard to pull in.
