Hello, I was searching the forums for choosing an oil for my honda 125..the thing is that I decided to go for ZIC 4t after reading so many satisfied customers..now the prob is...i dont have much info about oil and their specs..so when i went to the oil shop and asked for ZIC 4T he said he has that but it is for CD 70 bikes and not for 125? as I don't know much, I bought other oil...anyways...can any one explain is this true? plus..the bottle looked smaller than 1 litre...like 750ml i guess just like the oil for cd 70...so thats why i also got confused..please clear this confusion?Also, I heard that ZIC 4T is fully syntatic oil and it may not be good for old bikes? mine is 2003 125 so fairly old.. is it true?Thanks.
First thing is volume and second is viscosity. 125CC requires more volume of oil (around 1 Liter) while 70CC requires Less.. Second thing is viscosity. For 125cc 20-50 is used. Zic 4T is good oil. Every branded oil is almost same. There's difference of 19-20.
First of all thanks brother for replying. Yes, I understand 1 liter is required for 125. But why did the shop keeper said ZIC 4T is for 70? and not for 125? is it because of the volume or because of the viscosity you talking about? I'm confused...
zic 4t is good its viscosity is 10-40 its good for new bikes
Because of volume
Okay. So, you mean to say I would have to buy 2 bottles of ZIC 4T for using it in my Bike?Also, the person above you said its viscoty is 10-40 and good for new bikes..my bike is fairly old..2003 model...should I avoid using it then or what?Thanks.
Use an engine oil of 20w-50
Would you be kind enough to explain it to me why you said 20W-50? because I have seen all the people on this forum and other places talking about using ZIC4T which is 10W i guess...
if u want to go for a 20w-50 oil, then caltex havoline is a good choice. u can get one litre pack for around 400. and i am pretty sure that it will be suitable for your bike
Hello, THanks for replying bro. ACtually, I am not saying I want to use 20w/50 oil..the person above me said that...actually... I have no idea whether I should use 10/40 or 20/50 oil...that's what I am asking which one should I use? Plus, I have heard so many good things about ZIC 4T and it is a 10/40 oil..so should I go for it when my bike is fairly old..?Thanks..
Please consult you owner manual, if you have, it will given spec of oil, I guess it is 20-40. However, most of the people and mechanics prefer using Caltex Havoline.
umm.. I don't have an owner manual..I bought this bike from someone else...can anyone help me out? I explained the whole question quite a many times..but no one has given a comprehensive answer yet...
Yar just try it then.Like i tried diesel engine oil in my Old bike i.e 15w-40.
yaar sirf company ki baat hoti choose karne ki to koi bhi try karleta...but people say grade ka khaas khayal rakhna chaie oil ka..isliey dnt wanna take risk..engine ki na watt lag jaey any experienced 125 cheeetahh wanna ansss?
See the grading on Caltex Havoline 1L bottle, that is same for Honda 125 and that is very popular and most selling oil for Honda 125
okay yaar but scene yeh hai k ooper kisi ne 20w-50 use karne ko kaha hai or kisi ne 10w-40 but baat yeh hai k people say it depends on the life of engine k kitna poorana hai...to yeh kisi ne nai bataya k 2003 k engine k liey which one should I used? ZIC4T ki bhot tareef suni hai but its a 10w-40 oil so would it be good for a relatively older engine?
mera mashwar stick with havoline original,,i use the 20w50 in my 70.. a bit is left but i use it for other purposes,,chain etc,,response is awesome.
yaar mashwara to sahi haiii lekin i want to use ZIC4T qk woh wahid fully syntetc oil hai i guess rite now in pk..with specs for cg 125..but since its 10-40.. i dnt knw if i should use it q k bike thori poorani hogiae hai..so koi is baat ka jawab dede bhaiiii ka 10w-40 use karna chaie zic4T for 2003 125 ya 20w-50?thanksss
Yaar your bike is quite old for proper lubrication in old engine we need something more viscous enough and for old bikes 20W-50W is better than 10W-50W. and because of the summers in Pakistan it is allow to use 20W-50W engine oil for optimum performance
hello, yaar thank u so much..tumne jo detail bataie yehi janna chahraha tha k fark kia hota hai dono main or engine ki age se kia relation hai ..thanks broo. now aik jawab or dedo..ke 20W-50 main kaunsa best rahega oil? I think I would go for havoline then because ZIC main 20W-50 nai hai shayed? or haan fully syntetic suna hai lush hota hai to fully synt main koi hai oil pakistan main 20W-50 grade pe?thanks..
