    I have a dumb question. Do I have to do anything special in order to use a synthetic oil or is it as simple as doing an oil change and refilling with syn?

    That's all you do. Just change the oil.

    Nothing special to do but I'd be sure to get motorcycle specific syn. oil. The thing you have to watch for is friction modifyers in the primary. I've read where alot of guys are running syn. ATF in their primaries, I don't go along with that theory but they claim they've had real good service with it. I'm currently using Mobil 1 v twin 20/50 in the motor, 10/40 in the primary. Eveyone has their favorite but as long as you stick with a motorcyle specific oil, especially for the primary, you shouldn't have any problems.
