A friend of mine who owns a YZ400 uses nothing but synthetic oil and has had no problems. I have heard others claim this is bad for the clutch plates. What do you guys use?

We have been through this before. There are the guys who only use bike oil ($5/qt). There are those of us that use car (i.e Castrol GT) oil at $1.50/qt. And there are those that use Mobil 1. Everyone supports their choices. Now the rest is up to you.
