[quote=atrocious;1850445]1. So what you are saying is that the fabled metal filings in the chamber don't do any harm even if they stay there for first 500 km.This 50 km oil change; is it redundant or harmful...? I mean is it a pure waste of money or will it impact the engine badly as well...?
2. Can you name a few of your picks for the different oils you mentioned...?
If you are so particular, then just change the oil filter element before 500Km, (you could cut it open and examine it for the type of debris,Aluminium filings should be no cause for alarm, shiny brass type particles should cause concern, so also white metal, you can check if it is aluminium by putting a few drops of hydrochloric acid on the debris, all aluminium filings will react and turn black)
As regards the brand of oil, I am not sure that Team BHP would like any member to endorse a particular brand, so all I will say is use the brand used by 4 stroke Honda aircooled engines

Wish I could do something like that with my Bullet.
During college, I ran my bullet to the bone and really enjoyed it.
More recently I got it completely overhauled in Delhi. It was at a reputable 'bullet-expert' workshop, but the end-result is severely under-whelming.
Pick-up and top-speed is not like it was (before the re-build). The engine is clattering (the mechanics can't figure out what the problem is). Clutch seems to be slipping (again the mechanic can't sort it out).
The mechanic insisted I use Castrol GTD for diesel engines in the engine .
What can I do to whip my bike back into shape? Do I have to go in for another expensive re-build? If I do have to over-haul, can someone recommend a competent mechanic/tuner in Delhi?
@ Indiaman for performance, where can I get a high-compression piston kit? Should I think of a 5 plate clutch (to handle the performance) instead of the existing 3 plate system?
Bulleteers, please help me get my bike running well again.
Thanks in advance and best regards

running in after new valves?
Of late, i was finding severe loss of compression in my bull, and I suspected the valves to be the culprit. Last week, i got the whole head and engine parts opened up and checked by the mechanic. He told me that the valves are burnt, so we replaced them, put new guides and did some lathe work (not sure what, must be the valve seat grinding???). Now my bull is back in form
My question is, should I run-in for the next 1000-2000 kms for the new valves/guides? My mechanic advices me so.

Nice discussion going on. a noob question I guess. Is there any difference in the approach to run-in a CI, AVL and UC engine? IS the run-in same for a carb engine and a EFI one?
