Engine Oils - Above 125cc 07 Feb 2015 15:44 #3173

Hello sir,

For above 125cc bikes, which engine oil grade should be preferable?
What is the difference between elf moto gold,gulf pride 4t plus red color oil and normal gold color oil?
If owner's manual recommends 20w40, shall i go for 20w50? Is it advisable to use in above 125cc bikes?

Please put the reviews and suggest the best Engine Oil for above 125cc bikes?

Hi Anil Kumar,
The difference between "" elf moto gold,gulf pride 4t plus red color oil and normal gold color oil"" is very little -- in fact the difference is negligible for day to day use -- the difference is less than 1.6%, which is important only for racing.
If owners manual recommends 20W40, why do you want to go for 20W50? The engine size whether 100 cc or 125 cc is irrelevant and non-sequitur.
My suggestion for best engine oil for 125 cc bike is TVS TRu4 oil 20W40.
Only if atmosphere temperature is above 44 degrees Celcius in your city and you are racing then can go for 20W50.
best wishes

What would be the correct time to go for engine overhaul (term used by service center guys) for a motorcycle?

Also, what is basically done when the bike is given for overhaul to the service center?

Dear Mr. AnilKumarSak,
The KorreKT Time to go for engine overhaul is when cylinder Kompression falls 21% below the value as written in 0wners Manual.
You can measure the Kompression by Kompression Tester which any good mechanic should have. I also have it and I use it.
What basically NEEDs to be done is:
<1>Replace Liner+Piston set.
<2>Check Chain/Sprockets and realign. Change if necessary. Set chain tension.
<3>Change all filters.
<4>Clean and re-set carburetor OR injeKtor if the bike has fuel injeXun.
<5>Any other activity as specified by 0wner, which is YOU.
<6>Service Brakes and replace all cables.
<7>Check bearings and replace where necessary (as told by owner which is YOU ! YOU have to PAY. So YOU DECiDE.
YOU have to decide WHAT all needs to be done because if YOU want to go to heaven, YOU have to die YOURSELF.
YOU cannot go to heaven by my dying.
BEST WISHES
