I was just wondering what oil most zx10 owners use. Is a full synthetic too much for the clutch. I know on my zx9, that full synthetic made my clutch slip. I have been using the plain Kawaichem. Good enough for the factory good enough for me is what I assume. Any inputs? I have 10k miles on the bike and thinking of switching to semi or full synthetic.

I ran Royal Purple in my '05.

I currently run Rotella dino oil in my '06. 1 more oil change and I'll switch to Rotella synthetic.

Motul full synth. here.

Have used Mobil 1, Castrol, Redline, and prolly a few others in the past on other bikes.
Didn't like the redline because it just about pluged my pick-up tube filter screen, and leaves a heavy film in the pan.

:+2: I run it in all of my bikes and have convinced a few friends, 07 gsxr600 and 02 zx 12R to put in in their bikes and they like it too.
