Mmm, there might be something wrong with your drippers then. Are you sure all holes are clear? Try it with the oil tank cap off, you might have a vaccuum in the oil tank.
The oil also drips a lot quicker when the bike runs than when the engine is off. I guess the suction from the running engine helps a bit.
When I turn my drippers fully open the oil drips at a very fast rate, it almost runs through. Both on 30 as on the thicker 40.
About the use of synthetic oil in our old machines has been written a lot here and there. Searching the board on “synthetic” gives quite a few hits.
