    While I LOVE synthetic oils and LOVE the additional miles between oil changes they offer (its always amazing how clean and full bodied the Quaker 0/20 full syn comes out after 10,000 miles in our Ioniq) and the great lube they offer... For my bikes that have wet clutches in them though, I still prefer and have always ran Dino oil as I like to change my oils as the oil darkens from clutch fiber plate wear. Run em hard,, but keeping good "clean" oil in em I always say. Keep in mind though,, I am talking about any of my scoots (like my 1st Gen v-4's) whose primary design is that of clutch/tranny sharing oil with the engine.. Separate those components so the clutch is bathed in oil that is exclusive to the clutch and not being shared with other areas (HD been doing this for years now) - full syn throughout = no problembo.. Another "IMHO's",, even if your going full synthetic,, not a bad idea to make sure your using full synth designed for wet clutches = no different than steering clear of High Mileage/energy conserving Auto Oils in the Dino flavors...
