  2. I did some surfing on the oil subject some time ago.

    Current wisdom is that synthetic diesel engine oil is the best bet for bikes. Shell Rotella (RIMULA in Thailand) would be a good choice as it readily available.

    Above from Shell website

    Dunlop tires are available in BKK. I have the guys name but my server is currently down so cannot retrieve the tel. number. His name is Piroit. I'm sure he is one of the tire dealers in Chinatown.
     
  3. Motul and Valvoline at G3 bikeshop Chiangmai 089-2621334 or 09-2621334
     
  4. I use synthetic Shell Helix Diesel Ultra. About 1800 baht for 5 liters. As synthetic Rimula is unobtainable in Chiang Mai.
     
  5. Performance Specifications
    Shell Helix Ultra exceeds the requirements of all major car manufacturers and the following industry
