We both understood your point. . .our posts were just highlighting how simple yet complicated the whole situation can be.
I understand the consequences of my actions prior to engaging in those actions. . .there are certain situations in life where the risk is totally worth the reward.

I've used this for about 30,000 miles. Original clutch and all, no slippage. I suppose if you have a problem with that then you need to go with OE specs but I have never heard of anyone really having problems (until now). Maybe I'm just lucky. Last oil change I switched to royal purple (no probs) but I want to go with amsoil on the next change.

I used nothing but Royal Purple in my last bike. It was non moto specific too. I had about 300 1/4 mi. passes and a few thousand street miles on it. I never had and clutch issues. Drag racing will tell you real quick if the clutch is slipping.

Some people use Mobil 1 Red Cap - Non-Energy Conserving. If the bottle says Energy Conserving, then don't use it with a wet clutch.

This debate will never end... It is not a whole lot more to buy a motorcycle specific oil, so to each his own....
