    @ Prajwal | Hey I filled 20w50 to my continental gt 650 recently am confused weather I should replace it with 10w50 ,will it harm my engine in a long run, please help me by your valuable advice.

    It doesn't matter what number is but it's important to understand the main grade which is API and JASO secondly when you say 20w50 and 10w50 then it's a matter of temperature withstand capacity. Main thing in any engine oil when you switch then when you are using mineral then you can jump to semi synth or fully synth oil but you can't down grade or you should not down grade from fully to semi or from semi to mineral. Semi and fully is with lots of chemicals and specifically made inside the lab. Mineral oil has chemicals but very less and amount to is less. So switching to 10/50 is no issue or switching to any other grade also not an issue provided you have to understand your location. Since those numbers are important when your location is colder side or hotter side. You can switch to 10/50 but make sure if early oil is semi or fully then you have to use the same type. All though company recommend 10/50 but that's ok for Europe and North America or Canada since weather is always colder side but for India you can go up to 20/50 right from 10/50 or 15/50 or 20/50. In semi and fully synth chemical formation on engine spares are like film so when you pour mineral then that oil has basic chemicals which can't properly lubricate internal spares. So you may feel. Some roughness. There will be no filming of Mineral oil on any internal spares on which semi or fully synth oil filming is there. It's always best to use HIGHER API and JASO.. I hope this sort out your query. Thanks

    @ Manas | Service interval is 10,000 kms, do we need to change engine oil in between? Engine oil is fully drained & then refilled or just top up?

    Normally it should be changed at 10000 Kms , but depends upon your usage of Bike, if you feel around 7000 or 8000 kms bike engine has more vibration or making more noise and gear shifting is change than the viscosity of oil can be the reason too. So depends upon your riding method. But RE suggests for Interceptor/GT 650 oil change at 10000 Kms with 10w50 Full Synthetic Oil

    10w50 is the recommended Oil (Full Synthetic), as you have already used 20w50, I would suggest change it to company recommended standards cause it will/may harm/void your bike Warranty also.

    Excellent bike.I never thought royal enfield will make such powerful bike absolutely game changer for royal enfield.It is the best bike i have driven till date best in every aspects like performance, Braking, Comfort; you can actually drive for long distance with in one stretch, Seat is very comfortable for rider as well as pillion.Best things about bike is engine itself "mind blowing performance" and also slipper clutch is pro for the bike.Worst thing is bike wobble sometimes while driving, Fuel meter will not show the right indication, Main drawback is no tubeless tyre.Over all performance is mind blowing ones you cross the 3k rpm you'll get crazy.Mid range and high end performance is great.I got a mileage about 30-32 km which is high way mileage and 22-27 km in city which is great.Pickup is like you are launching a rocket, Build quality is awesome, Zero vibrations, Features is like basic you will get a trip-a&b and odo, Rpm meter and speedometer along with indications like abs, Fuel pump, Battery, Engine oil which is more than enough for the bike.After sale service is good.The service guy actually listen to the problem i faced and fixed the problem which is great.
