    What oil to use in a Raptor 660

    I run the below specs and was told to use full race synthetic oil MOTIL I use,
    I just bought an L&L starter clutch and they said not to use synthetic oil ?
    What do you guys run in your modded raptors ?
    This is what the guy said from raptorstarterclutch.com, I have never ever heard of this.

    "Nathan, we recommend not to use full synthetic oils because Yamaha's were not designed for them, way too slippery for the one way starter systems and clutches. You should have never of run FULL synthetic , semi sythetic is all you want to run... "

    I run the semi synthetic yamalube and it seems to have worked pretty well so far, but then again my quad wouldn't be able to hold a candle to yours.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I just can't see how sythetic oil would make a difference to the clutches it is interesting.

    I know a lot of people over on the "other site" was running Rotella 5w40 without any problems. I don't see how the oil would effect the clutches like they say.

    My dad just burnt a clutch up on his yfz 450 and took it to the dealer and they told him not to use full synthetic.
