    Difference in cost is minimal and I'm thinking there might be some benefit since air cooled engines run at high temps and synthetics can withstand high temps without breaking down.

    Yes it is ok.
    I would wait to about 50 hours until you make the change, this will allow the engine to break in on the conventional oil.
