    Question [Help]: Changing Engine Oil

    HI,
    I would like to know after after how many kilometers we should change our bike oil and keep our bike servicing?
    Right now for my pulsar 150 Dtsi, i use castrol power 1 oil and i replace every 3 months .
    Can i continue using castrol power 1 or should go for another one?

    Power 1 is good enough. Although I have noticed that the clutch in my UG3 slips occasionally when Power 1 is used.Maybe this is a problem specific to my bike.
    Activ 4t is good too.

    I would vote for mak from BP. had it put in last time and next 2500 kms there werent much issues...clutch was smoother......Power 1 is also really good. you can also look for Mobil 1 mineral oils...

    u cud go for valvoline synthetic 10w40..great oil..260 bucks a litre..also oil change depends on how u rip your bike...oil cud be changed in an interval of 1500-2500 kms depending on your riding style..
    if u ride her like u did in the run-in period,it may well extend to 4000kms too..
    If U haven't Seen GOD, U haven't gone fast enough

    Change it anywhere between 1k~2.5k kms depending upon the type of oil used.(Mineral/SS)

    If it is a fully synthetic one like Motul 300V, u can sure use it for 5k kms atleast with just topping up.

    @Pavan

    U used Power 1 in ur 180? U have used the wrong grade. No wonder ur clutch slipped
    When everything comes ur way, u r in the wrong way ;)

    Go for Motul 10W50 MA2 perfect for Indian motorcycle.
    Servicing period of your motorcycle is written in your manual, check it.
    But 3-4K is perfect.
