guys i got my second service done a few days back but the next day due to a little rain in delhi i had to cross a road near siddharth extn. where the water level was as high as the kick, so got the service done up all over again(engine oil changed), the next morning when i took out my bike i saw the engine oil droplets on the floor where the bike was parked & i also feel that the bike is not that smooth the way it used to be , feels a little bit heavy to drive. So, guys what could be the reason behind this oil leakage & the smoothness issue? I even got the carburator tunning done & all the spark plugs checked from him.

So all the bike experts which engine oil should i go for? Which is the best one? Please suggest plus is there any kind of a risk if i get it changed from a local mechanic instead of getting it done from the dealer(because i hate the service which SUMAN AUTO in noida provides to its customers).

Ok but what's the difference between a normal oil & a synthetic one????? The bike has done 4900Kms & everytime at the time of service the dealer uses the ELF Sporty(something like that).

You won't have to change the oil for around 15000 kms if you use synthetic. It also makes the engine smoother and I know a person who has reported better mileage because of it.

My recommendation for the P180 would be using Castrol Power 1 is you arent using it already
