how much did you put in? does the clutch slip?

as usual, the owner's manual creates an a debate situation. my owner's manual reccomends 10w40. a sticker on my bike says 20w50. i use 15w50 since i use the bike year round. the 5w30 is probably energy conservingII, which could cause clutch slipping. if i didn't put alot in and my clutch isn't slipping i wouldn't be overly concerned. slipping clutch, i would change it asap.

clutch slip is when the cluth is engaged (lever released) and you apply the throttle the engine accellerates and the bike accellerates at a slower rate or not at all. in other words, a bad connection between the engine and transmission. this would most likely happen on an upgrade from a low engine speed in a high gear.

gotta good idea. change the oil and filter asap and no need to worry. an xtra oil change can't hurt anything except your wallet
