Been running motul 80/90 for about 18 months now.
I notice if I do short city trips the changes get stiffer over time. Only after a good long run then does it loosen up.

Wrong oil or is this normal?

For me 75W90 (synthetic) oil was solved stiff shifting issue at low temperatures.
(The oil must comply with API GL-5 requirements.)

Was thinking about the 20mm or more of rough gasket surface I have between top of the carb and the baseplate of the filter.
Just a smoother transition. Probably overkill mind you
