    Ive fixed the poor lighting as well:-) .

    @ammarzahid , @jadoon1992_vxlimited

    Actually his route can be termed as majority of highway route (100km daily for university travel). Previously he bought a zero meter Hero 70, which gave up after 3000 Km and fuel avg. was 35-36. It also used to refuse climbing the PWD slopes with single rider.

    Now this GS-150 is wonderful. He used to climb the same with a pillion rider in 4th gear!!!

    ASA @ammarzahid bro,

    What are your reviews of Caltex Delo Gold Ultra oil in GS? I have also got reviews from a senior member of PBC, he uses Zic 5000 which is also a diesel oil and he has been using this in his GS since 2012 without any issues.

    He is using one of the following: If you see its Typical Properties it is also API SJ/SG
    http://zicoil.pk/pdetail.php?na=9&cat=14&main=zic Zic SD 5000
    http://zicoil.pk/pdetail.php?na=8&cat=14&main=zic Zic 5000 VHVI (Synthetic)
    http://zicoil.pk/pdetail.php?na=7&cat=14&main=zic Zic 5000 VHVI Power (Synthetic Formula)

    Yes bro, stock white indicators look really girly and idiotic on this old fashioned bike. Ive always liked these new honda ones and they suit the bike well so went for them.

    These links will answer your questions about using "diesel oil" in motorcycles:

    Motorcycle Motor Oil
    Motorcycle Oil...Are You Paying Too Much? - TrueStreetCars.com
    Shell Rotella T Synthetic full analysis - Honda Motorcycles - FireBlades.org
    Rotella "T" JASO/MA Certified | Motorcycles and Motorcycle Lubrication | Bob Is The Oil Guy

    Rotella T is US version of our Shell Rimula R3X/R4X with some minor changes. Delo Gold Ultra was most expensive diesel oil here so went for it. Now i will try Mobil Delvac MX which is being imported.

    Delo has performed very well for me

    LM is a good quality oil simply because its imported and Made in Germany so you cannot get some fake recycled stuff. But honestly, the diesel oils are quite superior to these oils, i think you'll know why after reading the links i posted.

    No. 1K KM tops. One more thing, liqui moly costs 850/L now. You can get Mobil 1 5W-50 fully synthetic(its a real synthetic, no LM oil is fully synthetic, even if it says so on the bottle) for 4770PKR/4L. Its one of the best oils in the world and comes in many Mercs as standard oil.

    If you use normal diesel oil i wouldnt recommend going above 1K KM

    Ok, thanks
    I dont want to go for fully synthetic oils...
    I have a question. If Shell Rotella T is almost same as Shell Rimula R3X then why you are not choosing this one instead of Mobil Delvac MX for your next try?
    I am going to visit some shops tomorrow to see which one I can get...

    Using glass lens and metal beam for a more effective spread of light. The lens puts out a nice focused beam on the road.

    My GS150 - magyhy6y

    If you look at it straight on the glass lens is so clear you can actually see bulb inside. With regular plastic lens thats simply not possible. Btw i replaced the headlamp assembly, using sprinter's now

    I will post details of lighting upgrade later iA
