Re: synthetic or not.......

It's most likely broken in by now, so why not switch over to synthetic now and make it last as long as you can? I'm sure you already know to make sure the Synthetic oil is designed for bikes and atv engines, not automotive oil with special friction reducing additives that can cause the clutch to slip.
