Today I had done some routine maintenance work of my bike, such as pressure wash, waxed, oil changed, chain adjustment and lubrication and got all old cables washed with petrol and oiled them with fresh oil... basically all stuff that was necessary after driving through heavy rain!
But the notable thing is that i have used Kixx engine oil in my bike today, previously I had been using Yamalube that is Yamaha's genuine engine oil and suggested for Junoon and is API-SG, JASO MA but it wasn't the best protection for my bike and i could feel that, the sound of bike would change soon after changing the oil.. back to a used, old oil.
- The Kixx engine oil I have used this time is API-SL, JASO MA.
- My Yamaha Junoon's manual says it requires API-SF , But this Kixx oil is semi synthetic and API-SL grade.
- This means I have jumped from SF or SG to SL that is 3 or 4 levels jump!! Petrol Engine Grades :- SA, SB, SC, SD, SE, SF, SG, SH, SJ, SL, SM.
- Now please advise is this decision good? or I should stick to genuine oil?
For reference: Mine is SL grade.. website only has SJ, so posting its pics.
