The clutch uses the engine oil for it's bath. I typically use the same oil for the transmission as the do in the engine.

It's less confusing for me

The clutch has it's own 300ml oil supply, separate from the engine, but it uses the same type and weight oil as the engine.

That is not correct.

The Transmission (Oil Reductor in the diagram) has it's own supply.



Trust me, I've been there.

Oil...

Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10w-40 meets all the Suzuki specs for the Burgman 650 and you can use it in both the engine and transmission. Don't use regular automotive Mobil 1 as the stuff has "friction reducers" in it that will ruin your CVT, or at least cause it to malfunction.

It will not harm the CVT, that runs with no oil.

It will harm the clutch, as that uses the engine oil.
