    Hello People,

    (New member...first post..So pardon me if I seem to ignore the etiquettes. I claim ignorance ;) )

    I am planning to buy an Avenger 220cc shortly. Although I have read and been adviced sufficiently advised about engine run-in (breaking-in), I was wondering about engine oils to use and changes.
    The dilemma of 'Engine Break-in' suggests the use of non-synthetic engine oil during this period and changes at 100, 500 and 1000kms.

    I wanted to check what are the good non-synthetic (mineral) oils available in the market.

    Also any other consumables that I should be worried about during this time.

    Thanks,
    Veera

    Thanks Guys. Just checked Motul (international) website. 3100 series is not listed. Will check it out locally. I supposed I would be looking for oil with 10w40 visc. index (will check in the owner's manual when I get my ride).

    What about the oil in the 'oil cooler'? Does it frequent top ups/replacement too? Avenger owners, help out....

    Your bike will need 20w50, by mistake I said 3100, got confused with 5100 which I normally use these days.

    Mineral oil is 3000 4T Plus and here is my review of the same Motul 3000 4T Plus review | Indiaon2wheels

    You can change engine oil at 500KM.

    Avenger needs 1200ml of engine oil.
