A while back there was worry about synthetic oils and wet dish clutches. I just bought a Honda Rancher and I need to change the oil in it soon. I have plenty of M1 10W-30 and would like to use that in it, assuming it won't ruin the clutch. I have been using the old formula 15W50 M1 in my dirt bikes and street bikes without issue but it was made before the friction modifiers were being used. A lot of folks were using Rotella T synthetic at the time but last I looked they want as much for 2 quarts of that as a whole 5 qt jug of M1.

If it says Energy Conserving dont use it. Otherwise you will be fine.

Valvoline motorcycle 10W40 at Wal-Mart, $4 per quart, good stuff. Save the M1 for the cars.

As others have stated, try not to use automotive oil in anything with a wet clutch. The exception being some 10w40 or 15w40 oils without the energy conserving label.... but with the abundance of quality wet clutch (motorcycle/ATV) oils available at decent price points, I don't see the point of running anything else.

EDIT: as someone else pointed out, T4 actually meets JASO standards for use in wet clutch applications.

Well the Rotella T and the Vavoline are conventional oils not synthetics. I already have some Delo 400 I can use if I want conventional oil. The Rotella T synthetic has gone through the roof lately.

Here is some Mobil synthetic that is apparently suitable for wet clutches.

Iíve been gravitating to the Mobil 1 pictured above for motorbikes and ATVís. Walmart usually has it, or similar stores.

I am having shifting problems with my Honda Rancher with electric shift. It gets better when it is hot. I don't know what the PO put in there. I already put grease in the reduction gear box for the electric shift with no improvement. It seems to be internal friction on the dog clutches. I figure synthetic would smooth that up a bit. I am tempted to use the standard 10W30 M1 and see what happens.
