    I use Caltex Havoline oil for my bikes.

    Your bike is zero meter like mine then you have to change your first oil on first 300kms.

    Reasons

    1. the oil which comes with new bikes doesn't have good quality. Its thin too. When you change the oil examine your old oil and you will notice it wl be too oily and thin.

    2. New engines parts brush/rub each other and sometimes there will be tiny worn out pieces of these parts in engine oil. But this doesn't happen to every new bike.

    3. Change your bike oil on every 1000km.

    Brother if u can spend Rs. 650 then go for LiquiMoly racing 4T.It is imported oilo from Germany and does not get black or loose its colour even after 2000km.
    All these stupid havolines,shells and castrols re just recycled oils used by goraas and then packed in Pakistan to make us believe that these are genuine oils of international companies.I have a Gs 150 and havin no issues even after 2000km of usage
    Best of luck bro

    @Haji_John,
    From below link i just found that it is 20w40 Grade oil. So is it suitable for GS150. Although suzuki recommends this grade, but i read on pakwheels from other users to use 20w50 grade oil. So yesterday i did my first oil change in GS150 with Caltex havoline.
    LIQUI MOLY - Motor Oils, Additives, Car Care - Products - Racing 4T 10 W-40

    So kindly advice on this. And also explain how to identify original and fake packing/color of Liqui-moly oil.

    Engine oil selection for bike
    Viscosity Grade
    If u have new bike then use 10W-40 or 20W-40 viscosity grade only. 20W-50 is viscous oil which is suitable for older engine.
    10W-40 grade will give u more power and fuel economy.
    Oil Quality
    Use API SJ, SL or higher grade, don’t use OBSOLETE grade like API SF, SG or SH
    Especially for bike also use JASO certified engine oil which protects Engine, Gear and Wet Clutch.

    Brother the link that u have posted is no the one that i use.
    I use racing 4T 20w-50 which can be found on this link.
    LIQUI MOLY - Motor Oils, Additives, Car Care - Products - Racing 4T 20 W-50

    Regarding your question about fake and genuine liquimoly oils.I mailed liquimoly germany to ask about thier authorized dealers in islamabad and they gave me the address and phn number of the one and only shop in islamabad and that is located in I-8 markaz.Dont know bout lahore though

    And about the comment posted by 6Forward pls do some research about relationship between oil grade viscousity and temprature and then post such comments.those people who say that 20w-50 is for older engines are just misleading others.

    Ask any educated person who knows about oil viscousity and he will tell u that the choice of engine oil depends upon temprature and not new or old engine.10w-40 in summers will just simply burn away as it is too thin for 40c or above temps.use 20w-50 in summers and 15w-40 or 10w-40 in winters.

    You may wish to check the section oil / preventive maintenance and look for a couple of threads on oil - very information; the best being the one by "Storm" and please don't fall in the the trap, some oils may have low viscosity but, are far more superiour. The "thicker the better oil" mainly being a myth of shade-tree mechanics....
    Matchles G3L 1941, Triumph TRW 1951, Matchless G3LS 1952, Triumph T 100S 1968, Matchless G2 1958, BSA B-31 1952.......... I am insane!

    Castrol GTX and Caltex Havoline are the two most commonly used oils.
    Not much of a difference in their performance.
    However be sure to get the original oil for your bike.

    I am also using caltext havoline for my CG 125, but still i am also interested in hearing about a better one. If any one knows a better oil which keeps your engine fit and performs well please share with us.
    Also should there be a different oil in winter and summer or we should use same type of engine oil in all seasons.

    Shell advance 4T but if u can afford liquimoly then go for it as it will last for 2000km without getting black provided that u keep your air filter clean. 10w-40 in summers will just simply burn away as it is too thin for 40c or above temps.use 20w-50 in summers and 15w-40 or 10w-40 in winters.

    Is genuine Liquimoly oil easily available, and what price tag? how often the air filter should be cleaned?
