I like running a synthetic oil. Prob dont absolutely need it but id rather spend the little extra to get the better oil and protection for my bike.

Not that i know of. I had mine changed at Motorcycles Unlimited by Patrick and he is a very knowledgable guy, works on bikes everday and even builds race bikes so im sure if full synthetic was bad for the clutch or any part of the bike, he wouldnt be suggesting it.

It's not sysnthetic oil itself that causes clutch slippage. It is an additive known as "Moly." That is short for a longer term. Motorcycle specific sysnthetics do not have it. You can find auto systhetics that don;t either, but it's easier if you use a synthetic designed for motos...

Street Bike:
Motul Syn Blend - Change Oil & Filter every 2500 miles. Makes it easy to know when to change (30,000, 32,500, 33,000, etc)

Track Bike:
After every track day.
