  3. Engine oil for TVS Apache RTR 200

    Hi all, I would like to mention my experience on which engine oil is best for your TVS Apache RTR 200. First let us understand what grade of engine oil suits more to Apache 200. 10W30 is the engine oil grade for Apache 200. Also the engine oil should be changed at regular interval to keep up with good engine performance. Now coming to the brand of engine oil go for DIVYOL SPIN X3 10W30 and is probably the best engine oil in the market. If you ride at extreme condition then the engine oil should be changed at regular interval. Otherwise it would lead to heating of engine and reduce mileage. Special care should be taken during rainy season, regular break check should be carried out. Ride safe! and do wear HELMET
  4. Engine oil for Honda CB Hornet 160R

    Hey... Recently I had done servicing of my CB Hornet 160 R bike from the garage nearby me. The servicing mainly included checking brakes for both front as well as back tyres which got fixed up and there was a need to change engine oil of my bike. Since it was my second time for servicing I hardly had any idea about engine oil. My service mechanic suggested me to go for Divyol Spin X4 20W40 engine oil as he had been using the same for his previous Honda customers and so I agreed to do the same. Now I found my bike running at its smoothest speed without any rugged noise and giving perfect mileage. Please suggest me whether should I continue or replace it???
