tell him its awesome .. so please give me solid evidence to back your statement .. ask him to take u to some senior at the pump and ask him the source for this info .
however according to this site
Modern passenger car engine oils contain more and more friction modifiers. While this is the good thing for those segments (reduces wear and fuel consumption) it's bad for the motorcycles. At least for those motorcycles which use engine oil to lubricate their transmission and wet clutch. JASO introduced the MA and MB specification to distinguish between friction modified and non friction modified engine oils. Most four-stroke motorcycles with wet clutches need a JASO MA oil.
and ax7 is jaso mab so in my opinion its incompatible with our bikes ..
after a bit more searching .. i found that most sites quote ax7 as API-SM and JASO-MA2 ..
did u noted on the can what specs does it adhers to ? any pic ?
and price and quantity available ?
