Oils for Gasoline engine

My Z200 need to be change oil again. I'm thinking of what will be my next engine oil and here's my alternatives.

There's always the Big three(commercialsm) when it comes in Engine oil.
1. Shell
1.1 Shell rotella Diesel Oil
2. Petron (Currently I used their engine oil after the break-in period and not satisfied. Maybe petron oils are not designed to perform in motorcycle from china)
3. Caltex

4. Castrol
5. Duckhams

Engine oils are factors on how your motorcycle performs. The life of the engine depends on the engine oil it using. It must sustained the heat created by friction the between the rods and bearings inside the engine.

On the Freeway

Better Road for Motorcycles

Hard Start

It's getting colder and colder because Christmas is near. My z200 is feeling it. After 3 days(Sat-Mon) of not using my z200(usually I used in going to work) when I try to started it today, It was not one-time start. After trying so many times, electric start to kick start, it was on again. I guess kick start was able to burn the sleeping enginge oil inside the engine. Does this happen to engine oils? But you don't want to try starting z200 by kicking. It is zero fun. Your body fats and oil will burn too. All sweat. Happy z200-ing.

So my neighbor having a hard start with his MC too. Just a simple troubleshooting, look into your spark plug then try to clean it. Your spark plug might need a little friction .
