Makes sense.I read that the problem is caused by cold oil trapped in the clutch basket keeping the plates from connecting smoothly. Once the oil warms and works its way out of the clutch it starts working right.
Maybe Fergy will chime in....he's the forum oil guru.I read on an oil web site something that has kept me from buying 5w40. Multi-viscosity oil is made by taking a base oil and adding a thickening agent that's heat-activated. It's a molecule that coils up small at room temperature and then uncoils when heated. A bottle of 5w40 is really the same base oil as a bottle of 5w30 but with a higher percentage of thickening agent. 10w40 has less thickening agent (about half) than 5w40 because it is a thicker base oil to begin with. 20w50 has the least percentage of thickener. Here's my concern: the thickening agent is not a lubricant, it just thickens your oil when hot to slow down the flow and help it stick to parts just a little bit longer. Am I worrying over nothing? I would rather be putting lubricant in my engine than thickeners. I can learn to live with the coffee grinder.
