    As long as its rated API SG, it's OK.

    Newer rating oils (SL, SN, etc.) have friction modifiers added for dry clutch engines(car engines) which may slip the motorbike's wet clutch. Don't ask anyone who is using it in a new or newish bike, as it takes many thousands of kilometres before the clutch slips. Because of low friction of these oils the engine seems smoother than with API SG oils, but it will make the clutch slip eventually.

    Edit: I was talking about Caltex Havoline oils available in Pakistan specifically. In general, lubricant oils with JASO MA specification are also OK, regardless of their API specification.

    @3131 You wont face any issues (havoline 20w50) but it would be better to use motorcycle oils.For Cg a good motorcycle oil suitable for wet clutches would do the trick.
    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.
