Has anybody else experienced clutch slipping after they've switched to SYN 3 lubricant in the primary case?

No problem here. I've been running Syn3 for 7,500 miles without an issue.

Nope

Since I have the 10,000 mile services performed at 'stealerships', every 5,000 mile service, I do myself and use Amsoil 20/50 all the way around. At the dealers I have Syn 3 installed. Neither bike ('03 Ultra, '05 XL1200) has had any problems with either lube. Ultra has 32,000 miles and the XL has 10,500.

Running Syn 3 in the primary with no problems.

Is the clutch adjusted per the Service Manual?

Don't know what year you got but I was told by my dealer the other day that there is a voluntary recall on all 2006 six speed transmisions because of this very problem ( slipping into gear from neutral while idling).

Nearly 7 1/2 gallons? The oil tank is larger than the gas tank? Could this be a typo and you intended to say milliliters? My '05 TC calls for 24 oz. (0.71 liters) in the tranny and 32 oz. (946.35 ml.) in the chaincase.
