    Zic oils are good and as its 20 50 i think that this should do fine. But wait for experts opinion regarding this particular rating. So far Zic4t Jao MA is the most advance oil available

    I will suggest you to stick with havoline. I dont like zic oil, we used the oil in our car many times but I didn't like the results. However you can try it but if you ask me i only use havoline in my bike.

    mere nazdeek koi problem ni hai
    maine apni tmam bikes mein car mein zic A+ use kiya hai i have no complaint
    as per specification use karna chahiye ni karna chahiye ye bhhhhhhht lambi behes hai
    i think apna zaati satisfaction lazmi hai
    visit these links and compare there
    flash point
    viscosity index
    high temperature support
    and other technical specs

    SK ZIC

    SK ZIC

    log to ab diesel engines tak mein 5W-30 use kar rahe hen
    i feel safe using fully synthetic oil

    Synthetic oil - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    but engine should be in very good condition
    bcoz fully synthetic oils are always very thin than other grades
    u may face some leakages if the engine is not good or old enough

    [QUOTE=jadoon1992_vxlimited;3456604]sallam everyone.

    ZIC A+ is not suitable for bike engine because due to SAE grade 5W-20. However it is highest quality engine oil API SN & ILSAC GF-5 certified best for cars like COROLLA, HONDA etc.
    Bike viscosity grade recommendation is 10W-40 and 20W-40 means that u can use 40 viscosity in multigrade (0W-40, 5W-40, 10W-40, 15W-40 and 20W-40)
    If your bike wet clutch then use JASO certified oil.
    U can use synthetic oil also and select highest API grade.
    Further more detail ask from SKZIC ID in pakwheels.

    Zic oils are very good for use in cars, but for bikes...stay away from ZIC. Havoline has been the best that I tried. I used ZIC in my FZR once and the engine gave a very weird feel so I changed it only after 100km.
    And make sure you use 20W40 or 20W50 and nothing else.

    Ride safe!

    I've been used Castrol Gtx for last 2 years in my Gs150, and also tried havolin but both of these oil useless after 900km.
    but today I used ZIC A (10w40) in my new Gs 150 .
    Now bike is more smother and engin sound also change (now its better) ..
    but let see how many kilometers ZIC A goes......

    Default Zic A+ not for bikes

    So i was doing some reading about engine oils today and this is what i found....
    -The API grade of Zic A+ oil is SM (recommended for 2004 and older engines) while Havoline is SG (recommended for 1993 and older engines) so i guess we are good here.
    -Being fully synthetic is another plus for it.
    -But viscosity grade is way off the chart for a bike. SAE rating of 5W20?? indicating viscosity grade 20 at high temperaures which might be too less for a high rpm bike engine and will lead to quick deterioration of engine on long rides . Most companies recommend at least 40 grade viscosity at high temperatures because unlike cars bike engine oil also work as coolant for the engine.
    -For wet clutch bikes , you must use an engine oil which is JASO MA certified. You see in cars, they have separate oil for gears ,unlike bikes where engine oil has to keep the clutch wet as well. Zic A+ being for cars only is not JASO MA certified.

    Default Zic 4T Motorcycle Engine Oil

    Now this is the right oil if you want to use Zic for your bike
    -API grade of SJ (recommended for 2001 and older engines), though not as high as SM(Zic A+) but also not obsolete as SG(Havoline)
    -Also fully synthetic
    -SAE rating of 10W40 which is much more suited for a bike engine as compared to 5W20
    -JASO MA certified, makes it perfect oil for use in wet clutch bikes
