I'm sure the carbs could have a good look over. They probably could use a good cleaning too. Its never really run great, it has to be warmed up to have good throttle response.

As for the oil, I'm a bit leery of going to a synthetic. The clutch and trans share the motor oil which is specced to be a 40W. I've heard going to synthetic can cause the clutch to slip a bit.
