    I only use Nitrogen, keeps the tyres cool and will not loose pressure as quickly. I also only use Shell petrol when i am in chennai, so gives me a good mileage.

    Thankfully i am near Shell and another couple of bunks which has Nitrogen nearby.

    I thinking of changing engine oil to Shell AX7 in another 500 kms, since its nearing oil change time.

    Anyone here used Shell semisynthetic, or should i go for Motul 5100. I have completed 3000km in ODO.

    Why does everyone prefer shell? There is no shell nearby. Nitogen available at one hp bunk where i usually fill fuel. How often do u check tyre pressure in case of nitrogen

    H friends,

    I am currently having pulsar 150 UG 4.5 and i am having issues with this bike while commuting. It does not absorb potholes and bumpy roads very easily and it gives me back ache while riding it. After looking through SF reviews, i looked at its positive sides. Will it be suitable for me to ride in chennai's roads?

    Shell because its know for quality. I use V power, though it is a lot costly then a normal petrol there is a lot of people who come to fill up petrol there instead of the very nearby BP and HP pumps. I found a reply to one of the customer emails from Shell as follows:
    Dear customer,

    Thank you for showing interest in our shell products.
    Dear customer please find the below details regarding your query
    "
    A. Shell V-Power is formulated using a range of fuel parameters and additive options, one of which is octane number. The octane number varies from country to country, according to local fuel specifications. In India, the octane number of V-Power is 91

    B.
    A. A. The octane level of petrol is often considered to be a quality index that enables the customer to distinguish between petrol grades e.g. between Premium and Regular grades.

    B. Many customers believe that a higher octane level equals higher performance and therefore higher quality. This is not always the case.

    C. Shell V-Power contains a powerful detergency formulation designed to actively clean up the engine from (and prevent the formation of) power robbing deposits. This helps the engine to run under optimal conditions and deliver its performance potential.

    For any further query kindly reply on this mail.

    Regarding tyre pressure. I had one puncture recently and as far as i know i have only checked and filled nitrogen thrice in the past two months and half, including that puncture.

    simply because it is one of the best for your bike, be it the engine oils or the fuel, it's way too good . . .

    If you fill nitrogen, you don't need to be filling it as often as you would with normal air as the air doesn't leak out that easily and also is better if you are planning for long trips, cools your tires from the inside. . .

    Cheers!!!

    Have booked the Gixxer blue colour.

    Decided against SF because my office (Tidel Park) parking is cramped and horrible. Surely fairing will get scratched within a few weeks. And parking on roads etc seems to be risky. Hence, ended up booking the naked version.
