This oil is bang for bucks. It performs the same as 300V which I have been using in my motorcycle for 9000 kms. But, I am a Kida (bug) of the things and I like to read and make my knowledge stronger and confident, I came to know 300V is meant only for racing. Explanation below. -300V is required only if you throw the nuts outta your engine on a race day or drive carelessly in the city also. -It's drainage interval is only 1000-1500kms after this rash riding. Frequent changes should be done due to no detergents in it to keep your engine safe when idle. -Damages your catalytic converter which is there for economy and environment. Race machines don't require such things so 300V can be easily used there. -Requires higher compression ratio in the engines. Meant for bigger engines. Minimum 300CCs. Wastage of money on lower than these CC engines.
7100 vs 300V : -7100 is meant for city riding as well as track day events due to detergents as well as the ester too. -7100 is versatile. 300V is race oriented. -7100 is safe for catalytic converters. 300V is not. -Both are fully synthetic. -Smoothness - Both are same. -Performance - Same but 300V pumps those 2 or 3 bhp more out of the bigger engine. -Drain Intervals - 7100 = Go according to owner's manual (Reason below), 300V = As mentioned above. Myth - Using any fully synthetic oils does't mean that you can use it for longer. It totally depends on your riding styles. If you push you bike to the limits every single time, i.e. only riding on track, you will have to drain 7100 also on 1500kms, if given summer time, make it lesser. Another situation, riding all time at max of 40km/h speeds, will keep your revs and engine heat less too, so 7100 can go longer than specified in the owner's manual by a 1000kms. Its because the oil looses its viscosity (research on this) over the time by the abuse it has to pass in the engine at higher revs and heat. This happens slowly at lower revs, winters, lower engine heats. The owner's manual is made after carrying out a lot of statistics, facts, treatments, experiments. Stick to it. It is made with a combination of abusive and sensible riding conditions. Suppose a bike is due for oil change every 3000kms, change it without ifs and buts. (Keeping in mind you clocked that 3000kms on city too. Only track and full abuse might not make it through. 500kms should be taken away from the above figure.) Tip : Don't change the oil viscosity figures. EVER.
So, I guess now you guys know why I prefer 7100 over 300V. Hope you do the same and save yourself some money as well as the catalytic converters of your dear motorbikes.
If you own TVS Apache RTR 200 ,then this is the engine oil for you.Look nowhere else.In a single day you will feel the difference.The engine will become super smooth,gear shifts will be slick and you will be able to rev your engine more freely. Go for it and you will never regret it.
A bit costly, but you can see the difference in just one day after using this oil. Gear shifting gets smoother for my gixxer sf. Yamaha and suzuki bikes below 180c.c-- a must use product. For over 200c.c. go for 15/20-40/50W motul oil. Provides good protection to engine against heat. Not like other oils that a few days of performance and then its all the same. MOTUL oil provides long lasting performance, I can say this cuz I've used castrol shell motul.
Motul 7100,10W40 is seriously working great on my ride ( #RTR160).Did the oil change along with oil filter replacement. I can feel the ride more smoother now and vibrations at low rpm are reduced Little bit. Only problem is i got a old stock ,but still it doesn't affect the performance. overall i'm satisfied with this. as shell oil is becoming costlier i recommend this Motul 7100 oil for all and especially for RTR owners.
I own a CBZ Xtreme (2012). Before going to Ladakh, I used 300v, and the change was evident. But on returning from my solo Ladakh ride, I decided to go with the cheaper 7100. And to my surprise, it's even better, it blows me away with the kind smooth gearing and refined ride I am getting from my bike. I am not saying 300v is worse than this, probably 7100 is more suited to my engine. And this may be different for a different bike owner. So, this one is a definite try.
it is the best oil i ever used.i use the honda hornet 160r cbs with honda full synthetic oil which is waste heats up engine after 20-25kms ride.gives tap it sound but after the oil change i used kerosene to flush the old oil which is cheap and does not have any detergent.after that i went for a ride the oil makes the gear shift very smooth in low speed and even in high speed no engine noise. i recommend every other person with high perfomance bike to try this oil
best ever engine oil for bike.I tried it in my yamaha fz fi.now bike becomes more smooth and sound free operation while shifting gear.my bike easily touches 50kmph speed in 4th gear with smooth acceleration.butter smooth gear shifting with best performance
very smooth performance gear shifting is very smooth than before , engine noise and vibrations are reduced , even after 80kms driven /day it works perfect without any issue , after service it was not effective for around 260 kms and after that it started showing itz results , milage was reduced 2-3 kms and engine is heating up so fast but everything is good i recommend for all apache bikers go for it if u want smooth ride without engine vibrations and noise , even driving in 100kmph speed it is not vibrating much like before
I am using this oil for my R15 v2 . before using this oil my engine was making some kind of knocking sound while cold starting bike and the noise would go away after engine getting warmed up . I got my bike checked with my nearest yamaha workshop and according to them it was piston knocking sound and estimate was around 10000 rs . But i just waited sometime to get a second opinion from someother technician . In the meantime i changed my engine oil from yamalube to motul and the engine sound was completely gone. Now after oil change bike has done 700 kms and still i had not faced any issues with the engine . So thanx Motul for saving my 10000rs .
