Anyone hear about running a little bit more oil, and if so how much? Thank you?

This generally makes them run hotter...but I haven't studied it on the honda to say either way.

More oil generally causes more "windage" issues - notable in the transmission and clutch area - on some bikes this is an issue in the crank area too. Those parts spinning through the oil all the time increases friction, drag, heat, and creates more heat - and less hp

We run synthetics in all our stuff - and highly suggest it for anyone. If your clutch "slips" "because" of it - it was already slipping - or on the ragged edge of about to slip.

Just about any high quality synthetic will run far cooler (measurably) and produce more HP (by a good margin)

Thank you I had no idea, I heard it somewhere and was just putting it out there but I did hear that about this bike but truly didn’t know
