    Bhai, is this the one from Veedol?
    I use Shell 15W50 Full Synthetic now in my 220 and I must say, it is a brilliant choice if my previous experience with Motul 5100 is considered.Name:  TAKE-OFF-4T_Racing_CAN-Product-Image.jpg

    Early morning today, I gave a proper warm up for my bike before leaving to the office. While on my way, I tried touching 110+ kmph. When I was about to apply the brake and reduce the speed, the engine stopped suddenly and the wheel got locked. There were heavy vehicles behind me doing similar speeds. I tried to pull over the bike, but managed to crank it again on the run. Since then the engine note has been too bassy. I usually don't ride fast and my optimal speed would be around 70 -75kmph. I tried to take it to 100+ today after a long time.

    Could anyone advice the reason behind this behavior.

    Any problem using car oil in bike, is the clutch not slipping ?

    Sorry bro, guess I missed your quote, xBhp quote notification has not been working well for me recently.

    This is the oil I was referring to;



    Comes in 20W50 1.2L bottles for the P220, costs 370/- per bottle.

    Use whatever oil you feel is worth the effort, just make sure to change at 2k drain intervals, the P220 has a very crude motor and doesn't come with an external oil filter, hence I'd be cautious of keeping oils for long as friction alone is not what wears down engine oil's there is clutch residue, combustion blow-by etc which are factors that are responsible for engine oil wear and tear.

    What is the ODO read and when was the last time you changed the consumables?

    None, you would only experience slipping if the clutch is nearing the end of its life.

    Motul 5100 (15w50) is good. I have used it personally on my P220 and could almost immediately notice how the gear shifts had become that much smoother.

    I'd suggest Shell over Motul.
    I had 5100 and the moment I've gone to Shell, it all changed after 200 or so kms.
    Shell gives better gear shifts and the whole smoothness is definitely better than Motul.
    Mine runs a bit more cooler with Shell oil than when it was on Motul.
    I do use Shell fuel too.
    Shell AX7 15W50 or Shell Advance Ultra 15W50

    I am really happy with motul 5100, it runs for 3.5k without any issues.

    I am curious now to try the shell ax7 if it is really better.

    For how many kms you had used 5100 and for how long you have been using shell ?
