BSA A10s are pre-unit (separate, chain-driven gearbox) and dry sump
bikes - engine oil doesn't really affect kickstart. The prob is the
90W in the gearbox. Yes, you can run lighter oils in the 'box but I've
run 90EP there since 1975 when I bought it and there's been virtually
no wear. I do run Syntech in the primary case - supposed to make
clutch action better but I don't notice much difference.
