Skids, what synthetic oil was it you had starter clutch slippage problems with? Never heard of that before.

Most any oil that ends in w40 or higher, regardless of MC specific or not, should be free of the friction modifiers that potentially cause slip. Thus the popularity of the 15w40 diesel oils and 20w50 Supertech.
