I've heard that synthetic oils do not allow for enough wear early on in an engines life to properly seat the rings. Personally, I beleive it but don't know it for a fact

Not only that, but in a quad where the engine oil and tranny share the same oil the synthetic won't work well with the tranny. Its not recommended for your tranny.

I don't really think the tranny is the problem, but friction modifiers can cause the clutch to slip or so I've heard. That doesn't make any difference on a Banshee anyways since the engine doesn't share the tranny oil. I think it's best the break in a motor on a semi-synthetic like yamalube and then switch to a fully synthetic for the longevity of the motor, but that's only my opinion.

The oil that you put in for your clutch and transmission never sees the pistons.

Use yamalube 2R for your pre mix on your break in and you will be fine. You do not want to use a pure synthetic. For your transmission/clutch, stick with a 10w 30 oil or 80/90w gear oil that is made for a wet clutch system. Make sure that the oil does not have any friction modifiers though.
