    Both 20w40 & 20w50 uses the same base oil , i.e 20weight . The 20w50 has just more viscosity modifiers added to it withstand loss of viscosity at higher temperatures , than the 20w40 .Viscosity modifiers does not lubricate or cool at all , that is done only by the base 20 weight oil , which would be same in both .You would not have any problems running 20w40 . Unless you operate that engine at very high temperatures and rpms for prolonged periods ( say days together continuously ) . Change it if it makes you feel better .

    Thats good. BTW dont rip your bike till then, ride peacefully. Since you were asking about castrol, Castrol Activ Xtra 20W50 is compatible with the pulsar 220, (the only one actually)

    Question

    Dude is it?? coz i went on search for motul 5100 4t ss and valvoline premium 4t, one guy showed me Castrol active extra 20w50 synthetic, i was on a doubt as it costs only 240 bucks, so i didnt purchasedalso i located some threads saying castrol is hell for pulsarz.

    Now Im totally confused on what to pick!!

    Here are the options available now:

    1. Bajaj 10000 dtsi
    2. Castrol Active Extra 20w50 synthetic(located one vendor)
    3. Valvoline 20w50 semi synthetic(not yet available).
    4. Motul 5100 4t SS (no chance in chandigarh or neighbouring cities, so might consider ordering it)

    please suggest fast

    btw is it true that p220 requires 1.5l engine oil??

    I meant use Castrol Activ Xtra 20W50 only as a last resort if only u are unable to find any other 20W50 oil. Other wise Motul is the best!


    P.S- use 1.2 Litres. Buy two cans (1 litre each) use one completely and use 200ml from the other one using a caliberated container and keep this one for such "200 ml top-ups" in future
