I use rotella in mine not the synthetic just the original diesel oil dosent have the friction modifiers in it to cause it to slip either

Synthetics are not the problem- you cannot use an oil that is either Friction Modified nor Energy Conserving. SOME car oils contain these and cannot be used- I use Valvoline Engine Armour Semi-Synthetic car oil in most of my bikes and have done for well over 100000km of use. No clutch issues so far caused by the oil.

Oh and my CBR clutch is starting to slip. Had the bike 7 weeks. Clutch is on the many things to fix list.
