I am going to change my clutch out this week, and want to switch to synthetic oil at the same time (the clutch/shifting on my bike has always felt sub-par) - is there any reason you should "break-in" clutch plates with regular oil?

Ok to tell me I am over thinking it!

Use regular oil with the correct MA rating.
No need to get fancy with all that slippery synthetic stuff.

Realistically, there’s very little difference as far as the clutch itself is concerned, but you cannot isolate the clutch from the rest of the engine, which runs better on synthetic ….

Don't forget to soak the friction plates (not the metal ones) in oil for at least 24 hours prior to installation.
Go ahead and use synth...your engine will reward you.
