There's another recent thread where someone else had a similar problem. Sounds like you're probably dealing with the same thing, I would head over and read that thread.

If the engine turns over via the wheels, and/or it starts and runs when bump started, it's a starter problem.  Drain the oil and coolant and remove the right side crankcase cover to inspect.

Mine stalled when I put it in gear and took a lot of effort to turn over, I guess it was right at TDC or something. Once I got it to move all was well.

That's a different issue, and actually fairly normal.  But it was nowhere near TDC.  What happens sometimes when the engine stalls is that it stops right at the bottom of the full compression stroke, and comes to a stop so quickly that the auto-decomp pin doesn't have time to extend before the engine stops.  This basically takes the auto-decompression system out of play unless you put the bike in gear and pull it back away from the compression stroke and allow the AD system to reset.

The belief that synthetics are bad for your clutch is hogwash, pure and simple.  You might find that some oils seem to make the clutch behave better than others, but not because they are or are not synthetic.  Just avoid anything marked as "API ECII (energy conserving level 2)"  and you'll be fine.
