Cool

Time for my next engine oil change after 10K kms of run after my last years OWS change over. No second thoughts, just ordered my next set of OWS goodies to give my swifty some goodies and vitamins for the next 10K kms.
Now ordering online has made it even simpler by speedworks. Cheers.

Default OWS Vitamins

HI

Just put the OWS 360 petrol treatment after the last oil change in my ANHC which has done about 15 k. Have driven about 250 k after that. The engine feel much smoother now and rev's quite easily to 4k rpm but then the i vtec engine are quite wiiling to rev anyways.

Does anyone now where to buy ows products in mumbai. I ordered the last one onliine through speedworks and the same was a very pleasant experience, but all the same would prefer to buy it from a local dealer.

Am planning to buy OWS oils in the near future.

IIRC, I bought an OWS engine-flush treatment for my OHC from Shetty Motors. Look their co-ordinates up in the Team-BHP Directory.

Default Re: OWS Goodies in my baby: A pleasant change

I have used the OWS engine oil, the Engine Protector (engine oil additive) and the injector cleaner in my esteem and found the products to be good.

I just changed the oil in my Ninja last weekend and in went the usual Motul 15W50 Semi Synth oil.

My odo now reads 10k kms and the next oil and oil filter change will be done at 14k kms.

I am interested in the OWS 600 Series Fully Synth 15W50 oil for my bike. I am looking for feedback before I order so any inputs will be appreciated.

Plus, do i have to go for the engine oil additive also?

I also plan to switch to their coolant - Tectaloy Xtra cool. Does anyone have any feedback on this?

Edit - link to their site : http://www.speedworks.in/HomePage.aspx

why dont you try motul 300v 15W50 in your ninja?It is definitely better than the semisynth 5100 you are using now.And the drain interval would also increase to 6K kms.I use it in my pulsar and i can say my bike revs freely and sounds very smooth compared to other pulsars.Give it a shot and you wont be disappointed

OWS 600 Series Fully Synth 15W50 - 630 bucks per liter

Motul 300V Fully Synth - ~900 bucks a liter

Motul 5100 Semi Synth 15W50 - 550 bucks a liter.

So if I can get the same level of performance from OWS compared to Motul and save around 250 bucks a liter, why not OWS? And the Ninja needs 1.6 liters of oil (with oil filter change).

Makes economical sense for me to go for OWS but need to know if its as good as Motul 300V or better.

I am currently on my second oil change on 5100 15 W 50. It is running distinclty better than it did with whatever oil the previous owner was using on my 954. Next time around I will make a shift to fully synthetic 300 V too see what the hooplah is all about.
Everyone has said only nice things about it, wonder if they rerally can feel the difference in performance and refinement or it is only the extra cost off the 300 V that makes them.
Also, look at Agip. I think Prabhu anda whole lot of other Bangalore boy use that.

Yes there is a substantial price difference.I did not consider this.OWS is definitely economical.Please do post your experience after using it!

I have been using flash lube diesel conditioners from 2007 onwards in my Scorpio and after that on my swift now. There is notable difference in the car when you use the additive. It makes the car a lot quieter, smoother and FE improves. I buy a 5L one from speedworks and prior to that I used to use the additives available in petrol stations, when I went to SW to buy a FE exhaust for my OHC i saw the product and Mr.JD Madan personally recommended me the product and I thought I would give it a try and never looked back since. I tottally recommend the product, now that online ordering is possible, I recommend the diesel car owners to give it a try and see themselves.

Just an update, i did not try out the OWS oil in my ninja. Have been using Motul 7100 (20W50) single Ester Fully Synth oil and very happy with it. Costs around 700 bucks a liter in Blore. Engine feel a LOT more refined and smoother compared to when the 5100 was used.

Hey guys - any one still using the OWS vitamins for their car and can some old users provide any update on the long term effects of OWS in their cars.

This will really help.

After reading about OWS for years, I ain't buying this. If you are using good quality oil that meets or exceeds your car manufacturer's guidelines AND change that oil at regular intervals, additives, even if endearingly referred to as 'vitamins' (Gosh! Can't OWS be a bit original!), are not required.

Oil additives are a rip off and waste of money. No car manufacturer suggests using engine oil additives. I had used STP in the early to mid '90s but that was because we didn't have much of a choice - either one of the public sector OMC engine oils or Castrol GTX. Yes it did smoothen the engine out a bit, but I realised I was spending that money and not getting value from the added expense. I think most people are staying away from Speed and other premium petrol formulations for the same reasons.
