Can anyone recommend a good gear/clutch fluid?  I got my 80 out for the first time over the weekend, but am experiencing some severe clutch slip in 4/5/6 gear when the motor hits the powerband of the pipe.  It holds fine in the lower gears.  It is properly adjusted with the cable being as loose as possible without the button coming out of the lever on the transmission when fully released.  There is about 1″ of freeplay in the lever on the wheel.  I am using Redline motorcycle gear lube currently which says it is wet clutch and Honda transmission compatible.  Could the fluid be causing the slip?
