synthetic oil is fine for 1500 and 1800 wings, friends of mine use it, although it maybe advisable to use caution, with the earlier wings, as it may cause leaky seals. I tried it in my 1200 and indeed had some seals go out. Some say that maybe the seals where bad already, which may be true, but I never had an issue beforehand.

I also felt the bike didn't run well on it either, but strangely after switching to a semi synthetic, it runs really nice.
