Just got my 1st oil change at 370km n used the new Total 20w40 1litre bottle, costed me Rs.265 from the main oil depot in Akber Market. The company people suggested me to use Total for this bike. Lets see how it performs as its the first time im using Total. thou i have used Mobil, Zic, Caltex, Shell n Castrol GTX before.
yeah Bro, thats exactly how im riding during run-in. I read the manual, honestly they need to do a better job at it, its very pathetic when one comes to comprehending it.
Yeah, i hear you about the synthetic oils, il change to it after my run-in period.
Yup, the tappet noise is pissing off. but even my mechanic said to bear it till around 1200 km.. lol that is a long time.... Secondly, wot shud be covered in tuning, any ideas here.
Well i live in Karachi city, so i usually drive in traffic condition(though i try n avoid it as much as i can, i hate standing at the signals). apart from that i drive pretty calmly, unless i get the itch to accelerate all a sudden.. lol.. cant do that on this till its in run-in.. I used Total this time.. lets c wot happens to it in a few hundred kilometers, else ill stick to synthetic oil.. Mobil 1 is available too, thou slightly more expensive.
