Ok.... I know this oil question has been beat with a dead horse, but I just read an article regarding clutch wear specifically on the YZ when using Synthetic oil!!! There seems to be a lot of people using Amsoil with good luck and as far as I know its a synthetic oil....

Are there issues with the 08-09 running synthetic oil?

Here we go again with one of the oldest automotive myths on the planet.

No. Synthetics will NOT make your clutch slip.
