    Default Re: Engine oil

    Hi Guys,

    This might sound silly, but my bike (CBZ Xtreme - Pre2011) is now showing 29586 kilometres on the ODO and I have been consistently (at every 2000 kilometres) using the showroom oil with the additives they recommend because of the warranty scare. I think my engine can do better than this and it has grown a bit harsh of late. My next change is at 31000 and I was wondering which oil to use for best performance, with or without additives. I have seen a lot of names and grades on this forum and am confused now. Can you please help me with this?

    Thanks a ton!
    From me and my bike!!

    Darn these svc guys , looting away customers and screwing up nice engines in name of warranty . Anyways try Shell AX7 10W40 as it summers , if you are really persistent on keeping warranty safest bet would be Mobil 10W30 , i would suggest shell as that grade is best for our bikes. Clean chain and air filter , change spark plugs every 10k -12k.

    Every 30,000 kms - It is recommended to remove the cylinder head , manually de-carbonize the piston top(crown),head and polish the valves.
    As the carbon gets deposited,the compression increases and the engine feels harsh/rough. FE also goes down a little bit.

    Even sibun has mentioned this innumerable times but nobody seem to care.

    Parts required :
    1. Head gasket
    2. Top cover/rocker cover rubber gasket.
    3. Head O-ring kit(includes top cover bolt o-ring,ASV o-ring etc..)
    4.Exhaust gasket
    5.Engine oil
    6.Spark plug
    7.Air filter(If old/used for more than 6K kms)
    Few other parts depending upon the need.

    Including labor and parts,this should not cost more than Rs.1000/-

    Reposting a problem I had:
    I've a small problem.

    Very rarely, when I try to push start the vehicle, the trip meter seems to reset. Not to 0. Trip meter was showing 112km, I rode for around 20 km and then see the trip meter again at 100. O.o Then I tried starting the vehicle and it went back to 97.2km. Now what I also noticed is, when I try to push start, very rarely, the bike acts like the ignition has been switched on. The Tacho needle does a full circle along with the fuel gauge and the Speedo shows 188 and drops down to 0.

    Just to remind you guys, I've changed over to DC lighting. Coil rewinding+RR Unit change was done. The headlamps and all the electricals work just fine otherwise though.

    Any carburetor cleaner will work but you will have to disassemble the carburetor to use the cleaner. There is no quick and easy way if you want to get good results.

    If you still want to spray cleaner from intake side without opening carburetor then use Motul P1 CARBU CLEAN or else use Cyclo carb cleaner if you plan to open it.
    Cyclo contains acetone whereas motul mostly contains toulene. Toluene does not damage rubber o-rings and diaphragm as much as acetone does.

    Thanks for your suggestion. So, the effective method is to disassemble the carb and get it cleaned. But what should be done with TPS. Can you mention all the points which should be taken care of while opening/cleaning of carb.

    As i read here ,NEVER DISCONNECT TPS FROM CARB, DOING IT WILL CREATE MORE HEADACHE. just use a screw driver to remove connector from tps , we cleaned my friends uni so i bear that thing in mind. Clean diaphragm and slide very carefully , hopefully under supervision of a expert mechanic, we took help of a ex svc head mechanic , take care that you use compressed air to blast through narrow passages , but dont over do it , use lint free cloth , even smallest of lint can cause blockage .
