Welcome to the forum

Have a look around the forum, download the manuals and you will find a few ideas about which oils to use and not use

If your clutch is slipping, is it adjusted correctly ? If you need a clutch adjusting tool drop me a PM (Private Message)

If you have the right oil with the clutch is adjusted correctly, and it still slips- strip down clutch (clutch holding tool required), check that you have the correct number of plates, clean and check clutch stack height, renew any worn plates friction and steel, renew springs. If you don't want to do this yourself , book it in to Sportax a Rotax specialist

It should be JASO-MA rated engine oil, normally mineral or semi-synthetic - that oil is designed for motorcycles with wet clutches.

Welcome to the forum Norman,

Yep check adjustment for starter at the gearbox end.. We stock and use the following semi synthetic oil for every day use..

For the race bikes we use comp 4 which is fully synthetic..

Hope that helps
