    Usually all bike engine oils turn black just after a few KMs of change, and mostly u cant catch a fake engine oil over an original one on the color basis...
    The color changes due to carbon these high reving, bad carbed, miss tuned engines produce... If these manufacturers wud hav focussed on producing EFi bikes, or atleast wud have used carbs and valves and jets from some quality manufacturer, the story wud hav been different...

    Havoline is the best engine oil, just buy it from a reliable source.
    Check its viscosity and notice the feel, sound and response of engine to detect the quality of engine oil... Not the color.

    The ones sold through the company operated pumps should be genuine. And don't worry, oil in an engine is supposed to turn dark brown or black. If it is not, it's not doing it's job removing the dirt from the engine. you should check oil by viscosity and not by color. Take a drop of oil and feel it with your fingers. If it sticks, it's good. If it's not pasty and more watery, it's probably fake.

    Yeah superman u r right ... i got it wrong ... the havoline i used before is not fake its still viscous i checked it by taking a drop on my finger and rubbing it .... but still the question remains can anybody tell me any specific pump in karachi preferabaly in and around gulshan,nazimabad and fb area from where i can get hold of genuine oil or should i go for the same shop from where i bought havoline before but the main problem is if somewhat the shopkeeper is sincere which is a rarity here sometimes even they dont know that the oil they are selling is fake or genuine its still very hard to distinguish between the fake and genuine one just by seeing its packaging ...
