witch or what oil
I am sorry to say but most if not all motorcycles are running the same clutches as the next one. Maybe they have more fiber plates or less fiber pates in them but there all the same. Check barnett or alto these guys make 80 to 90 percent of all plates for motorcycles and they all say syn oil is fine.
They do say you can not switch back an forth cause your fibers will fail. For the most part you can change from normal oil to syn but in some cases syn will not work cause of the condition's of your fiber plates.
Yes the other American motorcycle has been using syn since 2000 in there clutch's and motors and have no problem. But then there is the guy that does burn outs and heats his clutch up cause he doesn't know how to ride.
Keep in mind that motorcycle oil has a different shear factor then car oil so don't use car oil unless you need it in a emergency.
So if your scared stay with what you feel best with. I have never of a victory going bad cause of the oil more cause of the owner. Yes all bikes I know of have wet clutches except for open primary belt bikes.
