Synthetic Lubes Yes or No

I've been using synthetic lubes in my R bike for years (AMSOIL products) and was wondering if there was any reason not to use them in my latest K-bike. 20w-50 motor, 75w-140 gear box, and 80w-90 final drive lubes are specifically what's been used, any feedback?

If you think it's good enough for your R bike, it should be good enough
for your K as well.

Would this be a better choice for the motor oil?

Amsoil 10W-40 Advanced Synthetic Motorcycle Oil Product Code: MCFQT-EA

Advanced multi-functional formula for both domestic and foreign motorcycles. Recommended for high-performance liquid or air-cooled 4-stroke engines and transmissions and both 4- and 2-stroke motorcycles. Wet-clutch compatible. Not recommended where an API GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required.
