Am using the Motul semi synthetic 10/40. Plenty of people running that with the GSXR's and no issues. It's a very high quality oil. Can't imagine having an issue with that. Anyone else experience an oil issue with their clutch? My guess is that their is a clearance issue and is more noticeable when hot due to expansion. Or possibly an issue with the clutch drum or components. Perhaps a lack of lubrication at the clutch drum? Not a common issue as even the lousy service writer said that they don't see issues with clutches on these or the GSXR's. That's kinda of a giveaway that this is not a normal issue and that something has happened. Looking back, shifting has gotten a bit harder. Not as silky smooth as it was. This certainly shifts softer, smother than my other bikes. Although not at the moment.
