Most automotive oils have friction modifiers in them that can make your clutch slip, it's best to use motorcycle specific oil in your bike.
Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!
yeah car oil can make your clutch slip.. qwerty gave some good advice on this.. change oil - and leave your clutch lever pulled in when ever u can whilst parked ( or over night say ) by tying it back to the bars.. fixed it for me after a couple of oil changes in quick succesion. ( like changed oil twice in a week )
car oil no good for wet clutches...
