If your obsessed with knowing how the oil you chose is doing you can spend $25 and have it analyzed here:

I send in the oil from my Husaberg regularly, but I also push the envelope with the miles I put on that high performance engine's oil in my travels, sometimes doubling recommended intervals out of pure necessity.

While the Husa does have a wet clutch and calls for full synthetic, I won't be spending the cash for it on the Honda as I don't think it really is going to matter in the long run, there's too many Honda's in the world that have many miles using whatever standard oil is around and lets face it, this engine isn't high performance. Maybe I'll try a semi-synthetic to see if it will help the shifting be smoother, after we get plenty of miles to wear in the engine but maybe not...

It's a Honda, just ride it.
