Clutch problems after oil change

11145 Views 13 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Ronald
I got an 05 ninja 250 with 9400 miles about a month ago, did a oil change a couple days ago vans now my clutch is shifting funny. Up shifting is a little clunky and some times down shifting it wants to stick. Any ideas?

They call it motorcycle oil for a reason. Bikes need good quality oil that has good shear strength and additives for a wet clutch. (I think two of the differences are, or used to be, phosphorus for bike clutches and moly for car oil) I use, and have always used 10-w40 Mobil One Synthetic in all of my bikes with no problems and lots of miles. Some people do have great luck with car oil, (but why risk it?)
Safe riding!
