Rotella T (Conventional) or Rotella T6 (Synthetic).  It is JASO MA rated as safe for wet clutches.  It is also good quality at a good price.  I've been using it for a few years and have been happy with it.  Talked with an oil engineer from one of the manufacturers and we asked him about oils.  We mentioned a few ATV oil names and his general consensus based on experience was that most were similar.  Some were nearly identical save for detergent additives or labeling (several were bottled in the same factory).  We then asked about people using Rotella he said, "Now that's a good oil".  The jist was that it is a very good quality oil, but is also affordable which means owners are more likely to change it frequently.  Clean oil is the key to long motor life.

Rotella was primarily a diesel and heavy equipment motor oil, but has been popular in the motorcycle and powersports community because it shared the properties of many ATV specific oils and was an affordable alternative that was wet clutch safe.  Due to this popularity Rotella eventually had the T and T6 tested to meet the JASO MA standard for wet clutches.  Now it officially carries the JASO MA label.

I don't love the rotella. I am a fan of the rp and ps4. my clutch feels better on them. however, frequently changed oil trumps higher grade. so if it means you do more oil changes, I would recommend the rotella every time

Rotella fan here... the Rotella dino oil is quieter on my Rekluse than the synthetic Rotella, but Ive used both (usually the synthetic in the winter because of the lighter weight).
  Its also what Rekluse recommended for the use with their clutch set up.
