    Default Engine noise after oil change

    Last month i change engine oil to Shell AX5, previously i was using Shell AX3, i noticed that engine noise increase with AX5. I bought the oil from shell pump which is very reputed in faisalabad. I don't know how distinguish between original and fake oil. Please share if anyone knows how to check visually or another way.

    the shell Ax3 is 20w50 and Ax5 is 15w40 so extra noise is obvious
    as shell Ax3 is thick so you listen less noise and Ax5 is thinner you
    listen noises which i think you should not worry about a little bit sound
    change is expected when switching to thinner oil if you are not liking
    bikes performance with this oil then switch back to Ax3

    its really hard to distinguish between genuine and fake best you can do
    is buy from reputed big engine oil trader in your city avoid local shops
    and if you can find contact numbers on shell site contact them and ask
    for authorize dealer in your city

    Viscosity of AX3 was 15-40W mentioned on the label I used. I already done 28k+ on odometer. Now I really think to change back to AX5 (20-50W). AX3 feels much thinner don't know how hard it perform when engine is hot. Shell claims that it performs 20 to 30 percent more as compared to AX5.
