Lengthening the swing arm or moving the axle back as far as possible could help.When I modded my swing arm,I purposely lengthened the swing arm by 15mm to get more weight and grip through the tyre to the ground.Chain length and pitch angle,sprocket sizing,tyre circumference and suspension settings all play there part too.Don't get a slipper clutch until you have resolved the hopping issue.The slipper should be used as a last gap insurance policy when you are really pushy,not a band aid to a bike setup or riding problem.Cheers
