I would go fully synthetic rather than with the oil you linked to. A number of years ago a big study was done on automobiles with different types of oil. They found the semi-synthetic was no better than dinosaur oil. Fully synthetic did offer longer life. Either go fully synthetic to get the benefits, or save your money and get regular non-syn oil.

FWIW, oil is a small cost item in the big scheme of things. I've put fully synthetic in every vehicle I've owned since the early 1980's. Like good tires, to me it is worth spending a little extra money.

All name brand oils are good these days. Just be sure to change the non-syn per the owner's manual, and use an oil with the correct ratings (important for the wet clutch).
