    which fuel additives? in my last service the svc people put some carbon cleaner in tank.. though i didn't feel any change.. i heard should be used in 3000 kms intervals
    Yes you are right just after the service the rear break started making noise. The carbon additive is from the yamaha but there are a couple of additives from liquimoly which are worth to try and they are reasonabley priced
    Try them once you can feel the real smoothness from the yamaha engines.

    Short Review on Shell Advanced 10W40

    Model:- FZS V2.0 2017
    Milwage:- 20000+
    After pouring this oil on my V2.0
    Initial feel was smooth and crispy, but after riding it for 600-700kms i got to know the truth.

    This oil is not for the FZ, it's only for the scooters and 125cc bikes.

    It couldn't withstand in the day to day BENGALURU traffic.

    After completing just 1000kms i switched back to Yamalube. And my bike got his charm back.

    One suggestion:-
    Don't waste your

    Ohhh thats strange what about the engine noise and refinement with the yamalube??
    You mean YAMALUBE SPORTY PREMIUM or OPTIMA PRIME???
    Is the shell advance semisynthetic oil??
    I think shell advance ultra is a FULLY SYNTHETIC OIL from shell.
    Even with the yamalube optima prime the engine looses refinement and becomes shit after some 700+ kms.

    With yamalube, u do feel the valve noise when the motor gets hot! And that's tolerable but with the Shell advance forget about the noise you don't even feel that smoothness.

    And I'm taking about the Shell Advance not ultra.
    For Ultra you need to pay 750+ which is costlier i think.

    Yeah shell advance ultra has got many positive reviews dont know how it will behave with the FZ. Which oil you are using right now you mentioned yamalube but didnt mentioned weather its a sporty premium ( R15& R3 oil) or optima prime(the one which is generally used by the svc people in the regular service for FZ)
    I have seen many owners even the youtube mentioning about their FZ engine noise.

    Hello,

    This would be my first post on Ownership Experiences after my introduction.

    Currently I am owing Yamaha FZ-S Dual Disc since June 2018 which would complete its 1 year on June 15.
    Till now I haven't faced any issues on the motorcycle except for few niggles which are common regarding loose bolts & chain adjustment.

    Seeing discussion regarding engine oil my FZ-s (2018) was filled with Yamalube Synthetic Oil 10w40 (recommended oil for R15 & R3) since its 1st Free Service. Oil is ok for city ride & occasional revving , imo almost similar like Shell Advance Ultra 10w40 except for fact that motorcycle vibrates if driven above 5k RPM. Drain interval is around 3000 kms according to Yamaha. Costs around 450

    Had tried Shell AX7 10w40 (Semi-Synthetic) once, didn't felt like Semi-Synthetic, felt like premium mineral oil & don't know why felt engine needed for oil change after 1500 kms. According to Shell's attendant oil could be stretched to 5k kms . Better to use Motul 5100 15w50 or Elf Total Moto 4 Roadster (Currently using on TVS Wego) which could be stretched to 3000 kms.

    Currently driving on Yamalube Sporty Premium 10w40, thinking to switch to either Motul 7100 10w40/10w50 or Castrol Power 1 Racing 10w50 or Elf Total Moto Tech 4 10w50 (Could source Castrol & Elf from official distributors/dealer)!! If anyone have any experience with those then please share!!

    Also is it necessary to pour Yamalube Carbon Cleaner in every service because here they pour at every service?? Heard fuel additives or Premium fuels also do same job!!

    Can some member from Delhi suggest a good mechanic who can perform the fork alignment menthod in this video:-
    https://youtu.be/pNEmOqY02EU
    (the method which involves loosening of the front assembly and then pressing the front end a dozen times to straighten everything)

    I think my forks are not parallel to each other and need to try this method but don't have the tools.

    Sorry for the delayed reply,
    I'm using Yamalube Optima, even though it is good but it can't be the same after 2000kms.
    Could you please suggest me some good/best engine oil for FZ V2.0

    Even with the yamalube fully synthetic oil the gear shifts are little bit on the harder side.
    Right now iam using LIQUIMOLY STREET RACE oil which is a fully synthetic one the gear shifts are smooth even the refinement levels are better with the oil.
    You can try this oil for your fz i bet you wont regret your decision of choosing liquimoly products.
