    Default Engine Oil for CG125

    A.O.A Pakwheel members

    This is my first ever post on Pakwheels[dot]com. What made me to say hello on this platform was the so strong community of this amazing website.

    Decision to purchase a new GS150 or CG125 left me in confusion. Previously I used Yamaha brand as my choice for bike. But now I want some change. Performance, reliability and 150cc engine got my attention. But at the same time, style, pride, engine roar, easy/cost efficient maintenance, lot of mods won my vote in favour of CG125. I am just going to purchase 125 in next week and bike shall have some AHL lube in engine. In my XLI, I use Zic as engine oil which proved to be a best choice.

    Now my question is, shall I use same AHL lube or some other brand from very start? If yes which companys' oil should I use in my new CG125. I also heard about Caltex. Need your suggestion on best engine oil for CG125, no matter how much costly it is. As per my experience, a good running to engine increases its performance and reduces maintenance cost.

    Thanks in advance.

    bhai is sa koi achi baath ho nahi sakthi ,, but if u do it after 200-250km that would be good,,

    however i dont trust the oil that they put in advance,,, may be i would be wrong ,, but i think in general one should change after first 200 or 300 km default company oil,,

    Hmmm. Noted your suggestion @asjdsm. I will change the stock oil after 200-300KM. Well I also learned that CG125 (from conversation of PW members) just touches 95-100KM/hr. While video uploaded to youtube shows totally different story? Are they modified machines?

    i bought my first cg 125 this year 2011 model after 500km it does no goes up top 95km in the start but now after 1000km it goes to 100 and some days ago a guy here created a thread here at pakwheeles that his cg125 goes to 110kmph after running the bike at 2000km so i think the bike will do the full meter eg 120 kmph after 5000km running and 2/3 tunings and i am using Castrol GTX oil in my bike.

    @syedfaraz5 I myself has observed the fact that new vehicle doesn't shows its best. At just 500Km it won't show off its muscle. One needs to complete its running decently so that all parts are nicely polished. If we start giving maximum throttle before completion of its running, I am sure that machine will not be able to give its best performance. So, do complete running in decent RPMs and then start giving hard time to machine.

    After completion of running, tune your bike, change engine oil, check/change spark plug and then try to hit maximum speed.

    Jb aap engine to maximum mar dain ge tu aahista aahista engine khulna shuru ho jay ga (engine overhaul wala engine khulna nahe) aur aap ko maximum speed da ga.

    One thing is very important, perfect shifts (thek time pr gear lagana) are the key to top speed. Short or long shifts will definitely result in bad performance and may be loss of engine.
