Semi is fine. Full synthetic not designed for wet clutch use is not.

You can run the Rotella-T 5w-40 Synthetic. Works great on the Rhinos and has no clutch slippage. You can pick up a gallon for about $14 bucks at Wally World....

I have used mobil1 full synthetic since my first oil change at 20 hrs. I have not noticed any slipage of any sort. The motor actually seems to run better and quieter now.

Also use Mobil 1 fully synthetic 10w-30
and have no wet clutch issues. Radiator cooling fan hardly ever comes on and also runs silky smooth. I'm on my fourth oil change.
