So I put about 2/3 quart energy-conserving 10W30 in my bike this morning to replace what I lost from some recent maintenance.

I know the recommended oil should be free of any energy conserving stuff due to something about friction modifiers and wet clutches, but will this be good enough for about 200 miles until I get my oil changed with the good stuff? I suspect that right now I've got a 50/50 mix of energy-conserving and non-energy-conserving.

If you only put 2/3 quart then it shouldn't be 50/50. What kind of bike and what is your oil capacity? That little bit shouldn't be an issue.

You may be OK or you may need a new clutch depending on the oil and the additives. Not worth it to try it out but that's a little late now...
