    Nice video... Very soothing music didn't get bored at all. Keep up. I too have few old videos but never uploaded. After watching your video I have decided to upload them soon.

    Which semi synthetic oil is good for zma? My bike heats up and feel exhausted after riding a few kms in traffic. Right now, I'm using castrol 10w30 semi synth which has done 3800 km. Do I have to change the viscosity?

    Om1234, I tuned the carburetor. The rpm decreases after 2.5 turns of fuel screw. It is working fine with 1 turn of the fuel screw. I know karizma's stock tuming is 3.5 turns. But mine is working fine with just one turn. The carburetor is one which i got from a spare parts shop. The shopkeeper said it is original and he got at very cheap rate. It looked like a new one. I paid just 1900 for that. The top part of the carburetor was broken. They said they broke it to list it as a damaged product. I tuned bike just before an hour. I took it for a test ride. The vibrations has decreased. Rpm is not really steady. Very little fluctuations are there.

    Below are the links to my experiences with Motul:-
    1. Review: Motul 5100 4T 10W30 -> Semi Synthetic : Is good for 70% city and 30% highway use
    2. Review: Motul 7100 4T 10w40 -> Fully Synthetic : Is good for 70% highway and 30% city use

    Heating is surely a symptom of oil gone bad (also check oil level using the dip stick) but I am not sure about bike feeling exhausted. Overheating maybe?

    Mileage per liter drops. do it if you want. Bike runs smoother on highways with 10W 40. In city, pickup drops and as said earlier, less mileage.
