    2) Top speed has marginally increased by 5 kms
    3) Acceleration is much much better, pulls great even in 4-5th gear
    4) However engine does heat up more then before (No idea why)
    5) But there is surely a drop in mileage from 38 kmpl to 33 kmpl (maybe this is due to my 2nd free service)

    PS: I & my frnd (FZ-s owner) switched oil to castrol power1 simultaneously last month & gotta tell u that we both are much happier with it then we were with yamalube
    Mitz thanks for that anyone else used Castrol power1?

    Hi,

    I already know that and have been using it since first time I bought this machine. But I can't keep the helmet of my pillion anywhere and have to carry 1 helmet with me always

    Hi,

    I had a call with DSG guy and Iridium plug is available there. As I'm in Pune, I called several good stores here before buying the Iridium plug for my bike from Castrol Bike Zone, Shivajinagar.
