*I* use Amsoil which is a full synthetic that is intended for use in motorcycles and wont adversely affect your "wet" clutch.
Someone should chime in soon with the details I'm lacking.

Anything labeled "energy conserving" or EC in the API sunburst label on the back of the oil bottle is bad for a wet clutch. If you want good protection on the cheap, HDEOs (Rotella, Delo, Delvac etc) are the way to go. I think I may have opened a can of worms...
I second that motion-and let the worms fly.

I have been using the cheap honda brand for years never had a problem.
You are waisting money on full syn. or the red line, blue line, amsole, or the other expensive brands.
