45mph in 3rd gear.. twist the throttle all the way and the clutch slips without pulling the lever.

OK, that is clutch slipping then. You said "slips out of gear". I was thinking it actually came out of gear. ;)

Nope. Just slips a little and then re-engages when you let off the throttle..

I can confirm. It will just need new clutch plates soon.

Hi, I apologize for the perhaps stupid question, looking at the fourth photograph, but the one "resting" on the base, between the carburetors and the petrol tank, is an air filter ??

Yea. Rather than run a hose up to the air box and back down to the oil breather thingy by the center stand (which is always disgusting btw) I use a chrome breather filter.
Looks SO much better.
