That being said; your oil is probably not the cause of your clutch slipping. Look and search our tech forum, and you'll probably find your answer shortly. There is also a full manual, and supplement on that forum. If you need help from us; you'll need to tell us your year model and smileage.

    PS: Are you using a motorcycle specific oil? I hope so!

    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...
