Hey Epyupc,

Firstly, ive been wondering - what does your nick mean?? lol

Secondly, i remember hearing that there are seperate synthetic bike oils for bikes which have the same oil in the clutch housing, or alternatively that certain syn-oils arent reccomended by the manufacturer for those situations..... so you might wanna make sure about that if you arent aldready sure.

This thread (The Best 4T Oil) vaguely touches on the subject.

Hey Rehaan....it was my login id for the university servers. Just use it these days, since I'll never forget it. ;D

For bikes with a "wet" clutch, I just have to make sure ot doesn't have any friction reducing additives.

I think among the ones available in India, the Castrol Magnetic (or Magnetec) is the only one which have those additives.

Stuff like Mobil1 doesn't have it. Thans for looking out...

Try General Automobiles on JC Road. A few of us had picked up Mobil 1 from his store.
(I don't know if I got the name of the store right, Mahesh/Rudra can you confirm please.)
