Thing is, bearings aren't designed with a specific oil in mind like that. The bearings we use on our bikes will be used in masses of applications. I'd be stunned if it was due to the oil.
Do you still have the bearing? If so, whack some pics of the outer race and the rollers!

It was 0/40 car oil.I find its great in my car engine.Only thing i can think is the oil was so slippery,the rollers did not turn.There was no damage anywhere else but the roller bearing.All ball bearing and plain bearings were un marked.
The biggest advantage of the other synths i have used is the easy starting and nice tickover
People never have problems with synthetic after a rebuild or in new engines. If you use the correct grade, it's just cleaner oil, that's all. It does have detergents added too which just keeps it cleaner. No more sludge trap blocking up! Keeps all oilways clear etc. This is the thing, it'll best to start using synthetic after a rebuild ideally as it'll break up all the rubbish in your system already. People generally get problems from using synthetic because they don't understand what it is or how it works.
