I was told by a honda dealer part man that you should not run senthetic oil due to the wet clutch . Personally dont no if true .Would like to no though
Don't use oils labeled "Energy Conserving" because they contain moly, which may cause clutch slippage. Synthetic is fine. I run it exclusively in my VFR with no issues, and plan to run it in the Fury as soon as I do the 600 mile change.

Not true, as long as there is no Moly in it, also do not use anything that says energy conserving, Honda markets a synthetic 10-30, and a blend in 10-40, I use it (10-30) in both of my bikes

Royal Purple for my red Fury
What type? I been using royal purple for the last few years in my truck (15qts per oil change) and never even thought about it for my bike.

*Edit/Addition*

Sent an email to RP and got a quick reply as to type of oil needed.

Captain Ben,

We recommend that you use the appropriate viscosity grade of our RP
MaxCycle series of engine oils.
For the 1300 cc liquid cooled fuel injected Honda Fury twin, the
MaxCycle 10W40 part # 01315 is a great choice.

When I went in for an oil change the other day, I brought up the question about synthetic oil causing clutch slippage. He said it wasn't an issue with Honda's (unless you use moly) and he was saying Honda's engine set up was different than others....not sure of the technical aspects though.
