    kixx all products are not upto standard, your engine will be ruined, shell is ok but starts burning at high temperatures , I recommend to go for ZIC

    Bro, yes it's JASO MA Certified. There are signs of ml on the side of the bottle so I poured 0.75L oil from those signs and then checked it thorugh engine oil guage. It's very easy.

    i wanted to purchase this oil & had searched few shops in hyderabad
    i found this oil there but don't why it looked 2 number to me
    no doubt the oil specification are great & its an very good oil

    jin do 3 shops par maine yeh oil dekha wanha par oil ki bottles buhat dirty
    thi bilkul saaf dikh raha tha jaise doobara refilled ho
    shell film seal seemed low quality & duplicate to me
    aur shop waala toh mujhse barha ajeeb behave kar raha tha
    maine usko kaha yeh oil ke bottle toh dikhao
    agar lene hai toh dikhaoga & his behaviour was very dubious
    jab mein bottle inspect kar raha tha toh es par bhi woh ******* naraaz ho raha tha

    my dear brothers in summer exceeding temperatures of 40 degrees always use a thicker oil i.e 20w50 irrespective of the brand name..The engine temperature is extremely hot during summers.
    The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are above-average drivers.

    Yes you are right we should use 20w-50 oil for old engines. Pridor is 2013 model bike so I think it's best oil for it. However to overcome the temperature issue, bro you know it's JASO MA certified oil which easily overcomes the heating issue of engines. Otherwise if I had an old bike then definately I choose AX3 which is thicker.
    @amjad635, bro I have purchased it from METRO and it had seal on it's top by shell.

    Lala irrespective of old or new engine..My statement holds..20w50 oil provides superior protection than 10w40/15w40 oil which provides better torque..The heat generated by engine reduces the viscosity of the latter oil sooner than a 20w50 one.As i am using LM 20w50,,many people complain me often about bike's engine overheating and i recommend them a thicker oil and they are satisfied.AT extreme heat these oil shear down faster than a thicker oil..Also my bike is fairly new with 6.5k kms on odo.

    So kind of you,,investing your precious time in browsing through my comments..As knowledge increases with time i came to know than in extreme summers of Pakistan thin oil loose their viscosity sooner than during winters.. i.e AHL oil which people usually drain between 1k-1.5k kms becomes water(becomes 20w30) after 800Kms(personal observation)..The higher viscosity oils tend to shear down at longer intervals and thick oil will always provide better protection..Ask yourself why people use thicker oils in old engines i.e damage mitigation..It is better at protecting engine than a thin oil..Peace out

    Bro, now you came to know that how many people love your comments.

    I read oftenly all the comments posted by pakwheelers and all comments are precious to everyone who search for new things.

    So as a habbit, I save the good/appealing comments for future reference and so in your case. However, as we all are here to increase knowledge from each other so I add one thing more that AHL manual also tells that we can use 15W-40 oil for above 40c temperature as shown in attached pic. Now what you say?

    Bro it was an error. I used AX5 as shown in pics and for the price I remember that it was 40Rs less from METRO as the price quoted on the bottle. I purchased it three months back so I have to see the bill if available at home.

    Actually 20w-40 is for the areas where the temperature limit is from 0 or above and for the areas where temeperature level is between -5 or above there it is recommending 15w-40 or 15w-50.

    Secondly, 10w-40 is recommended for all weathers as temeperature range from -12c to +40c which is the temperature all over Pakistan.

    So I got from AHL Manual that

    1. The engine oil 10w-40 is best for those motorcycle engines which are used LESS,
    2. The engine oil 15w-40 is best for those motorcycle engines which are used NORMAL,
    3. The engine oil 20w-40 & 20W-50 is best for those motorcycle engines which are used MORE
