Motorcycle oils have special additives just for bikes, since they share the oil with the transmission. Regular oil will greatly shorten the life of a motorcycle engine.

No doubt. Some guys get really fired up about it to. Along with tire and tire pressure threads.

dricked 300V looks like radioactive goo. I'm sure that's from being dyed.

Siwa Cool name. I've been using Motul 300V for my last few oil changes and I'm a fan so far. Traditionally always went for Belray.
The Motul has a beautiful green gold colour, and smells like I want to drink it.

shoginator You can find a lot of negative reviews on the net for RP oils. You can find good reviews as well. I do not know of a single pro engine builder that uses it. I stay away from any product that states BS science in their hyped marketing ads. Ask yourself why would a company put all that dye into the product? Could it be - I dunno - marketing? Don't get me going on ZMax either.

Run a good synthetic (Mobil1, Rotella T6, etc) that does not say "Energy Conserving" on that little round cert label and you're clutch will be fine.
