any comments on lupromax? it seems overpriced

 

so far i have used pennzoil and lupromax in my ybr 125. on high revs above 7k rpm lupromax run with less vibration. slow speeds it tends to vibrate more than pennzoil.

 

dont think its placebo effect as i switched back to pennzoil and the vibrations came back.

what u guys think about maxima extra or maxima synblend? any good? am currently using motul 300v but wanna experiment with the rest. seems most recommended oil nowadays besides 300v.

 

I used to use 300V. I loved it. But I have swapped out to something else since.... Check out my writeup on my reasons for NOT using 300V here:

An excellent write up, with sound and logical flow. You are a true representation of what is required in today's society - people who synthesize, put the right information at the right time, think critically about it and make important choices wisely. I have learnt a lot from your posts and your experiences!

Thanks for the compliments. Motor oil is a very personal topic to many - some swear by certain brands, some swear at certain brands. There is a lot of fuzzy information out there and as a discerning consumer, I'd like to delve deeper into the choices presented.

Hi, thank you for the write up. It helps a lot with my decision for motor oils. Currently I am still deciding on the brand of oils to use. Based on research I've decided to narrow it down to ester based oils. As such I'm testing on the various brands of oils available. Thus far I've only used Bardahl Kiwami for my 1st oil drain and currently on Motul 300v. Next 2 oils would probably be the BelRay EXS and Maxima Extra.

 

I noticed in your write up that Motul 300v 4T is not JASO MA certified ("I checked – Motul’s 300V 4T NOT certified JASO MA or API SL that the Bajaj manual calls out for"), however, when I went to the JASO site to check on oils that are certified, it is stated there (www.jalos.or.jp/onfile/pdf/4T_EV_LIST.pdf).

Admittedly its claims to be Above Existing Standards are somewhat vague (https://www.motul.com/system/product_descriptions/technical_data_sheets/61276/original/300V_Factory_Line_15W-50_%28GB%29.pdf?1362490048).

 

Nevertheless, it is a very informational piece of writing that would assist many with their oil choices.

 

Thank you.

Considering this is Singapore, where we are facing tropical climate mostly throughout the year, would the front number of the engine oil make any difference? Between a 5W40 and a 15W40, what difference would it make?
