Repsol Engine Oil For Hyosung
My bike is due for its first service and I was thinking of trying different brand of Engine Oil (EO). The recommended EO by Naza Bikes for my GT250R was Motul 3100 10w40.
You might wonder why am I trying different brand? Honestly, I find it hard to free or (N) neutralise the bike gear when it’s at stationary position. i.e. When I stopped at the traffic light. Whilst I can still free the gear before stopping, I think it should not be any problems to neutralise the gear in a stationary position.
I’ve read up online on this issues and some of them said changing to a different EO may solve the issue provided the bike clutch cabel is in good hand or set longer . (Yes, mine is good and my bike is still below 1000KM at this moment).
Some of the bikers did recommend me to use Nano 10W40 and they said it’s a good EO. I couldn’t find much info on this EO and I’m quite afaid to try this.
I’ve then called up Mr Khairul at Naza bikes and asked him if he can recommend me some other EO than Motul ones, he said Naza is trying Repsol EO 10W40 at their bikes and based on their Research & Development (R&D) department, the said the EO is quite good and compatible with Hyosung / Naza Blade bikes and they may change from Motul to Repsol in the future.
Unfortunately, the Repsol EO is not available for sale in Naza Bikes SC in Shah Alam. Fortunately, I found the dealer of this EO is just few hundred meters from the Naza bikes SC.
