I've owned lots of older, high mileage bikes and rarely had to get a new clutch.
As long as it hasn't been abused, it should last a very long time. On a bike with <20K km I wouldn't worry.
If the clutch slips, I'd check the adjustment first, maybe somebody tightened it up too much.
There must be something seriously wrong before I pull the clutch and start checking the thickness.
