Obviously, as the speedo is working, the cable is fine. So, before replacing, please try to give it outside A.S.S. If possible to the guys who alter the kms in the speedo. They will correct it in a jiffy for less than 200 bucks.
I read in some of the topics here on BHP where many people were saying not to use Fully sythentic oils on bikes and to go for a 20W-40 Grade Semi-synthetic or mineral ones. So was thinking of something like Shell Advance AX3 or AX5. Any idea how it is? Costs 240Rs a bottle. Which one ?AX3 or 5? Was using Castrol before i tried my ill-fated attempt @ servicing at a Honda authorized service rip-off centre

I don't think you should have a a problem with FS, few weeks ago i replaced 10w30 Mineral in ZMA with 20w40 FS from Shell (~800/-). I was initially apprehensive too about switching to FS but after browsing several threads on the net i decided to go for it. Trust me it does make a noticeable difference in running and gear shifts too become very smooth.

well we are talking about the Unicorn here. Its already smooth believe me and i doubt any oil can make it even better! Anyway let me think about FS for now. I am stil leaning towards Semi-synthetic AX3 or AX5 just to avoid having to pay 800Rs upfront for FS compared to 250Rs for a SS.

and ya these links supporting what i had said before
