Thanks for the info. I am being more educated by the day. After re-examining oil, it doesn’t have anything in the lower circle. It also is not JASO, Mia culpa. I rode over 13K on same lube. On my educational journey, I found a notice in the manual from the 05, that tells not to “rev” more than about 3 seconds. Limited rpms. Duh I did! With your info I believe that I wore the friction pads at a very accelerated rate. Leaving me with a slipping clutch. When it was on the center stand, and I rev d, if I didn’t apply brakes it may not be in this state. Thank you all for this great forum. And le dude for the videos.The front pulley of the CVT is ALWAYS directly connected to the engine, so is always spinning, and the rear pulley of the CVT is also ALWAYS direct connected to the clutch at the other end, and only the belt between the pulleys making that connection between the pulleys... also ALWAYS so that both pulleys are always spinning. The clutch is the only part that is not always engaged with the final drive. The input side of the clutch is ALWAYS spinning but the output side is not at low rpm. The clutch engagement is controlled by rpm. When rpm goes over 1800 the clutch engages. When rpm drops to around 1500 the clutch dis-engages. If you pretend to be a Harley rider and rev your engine up past 1800 rpm then you put excess strain on the clutch pads (clutch pack would likely be the clutch plates and pads assembly... big round cover on the left side just in front of the final drive swing arm). If you do this often or hold it there for very long you will damage the clutch and possibly other mechanical bits. This is not a muscle bike to be used for showing off engine sounds at high revs. There is no clutch lever to keep the clutch dis-engaged and no neutral gear.
BTW- I just did a Google search on the Mobile 1 bottle label and all samples that came up showed that this oil IS "Resource Conserving" in the bottom outer ring of the API service circle. I know that the graphic I posted above only shows Energy Conserving, but Resource Conserving is really the same thing, at least as far as the problems that will happen. That's why I mentioned it. If you have a bottle of Mobile 1 that does in fact show nothing, totally blank, nada in that lower outer ring then you should be fine. I'd recheck just to be sure.
