Indy_ I used Castro part synthetic. I got it from cycle gear. And I'm sure its jaso approved.

TIM_ so what's the best oil to get for my situation. The precious owner used this and I quote " 10/40 synthetic wet clutch" so what do u think???

SuperK_ if my clutch is out how much am I looking at cost wise?

TIM _ so before I go spending money on replacing the clutch and all. I'm guessing I should drain it, out a new filter and the answer to the question that is most important!!!!! Wjat oil do I use now?

Grinchy_ no I had no problems with the clutch or it slipping wjat so ever. I changed the oil witch was past due. And about 2-3 weeks later it started slippin.

Please help anybody!!! Wjat should be the first thing I should do? Change the oil I'm assuming

you could try changing the oil but if the slipping was related to the oil change i suspect the problem would have showed up sooner.

Ive heard of slip occurring when going from semi syn to full syn oil ( Suzuki tl1000s suffered from this) but not the other way round. you have the required free-play at the lever I'm taking it??

Just change the oil and check. The specific oil isnt that important. Try another one and I bet it clears up. If it doesnt, its time for a new clutch.

CHANGE THE OIL FIRST. I know a bike that slipped on Amsoil. Clutches are funny like that. Many factors can attribute to it. Dump the oil and add Mobile 1 or Rotella and see what it does. If it still slips move on the the clutches. Its not a bad job and costs under 200 to do yourself.

I always use non moto specific oil. I drag race so I think I can tell when it slips. If I can make several hundred passes on an OEM clutch and the clutches still look good, its an indicator the oil is not hurting the clutch. Im not saying his clutch is fine, I'm saying look at the fact that there wasn't a problem till he changed the oil.
