Jaso stands for Japanese Automobile Association.
Sorry I don't know the exact abbreviation.
Jaso SG is a Car oil!
Jaso MA is for motorcycles with combined engine/gearbox clutch systems.
Shell Helix 5,7 or whatever is not for bikes.
Castrol Actevo
or you also get Puntoline, but more expensive.

But its your bikes so put in whatever you please. :P

Which clearly explains why my bike feels better with Honda Motorcycle oil in it

Thanks Jorge. ;)

I recently bought rear brake pads from Wayne Heasman. They are Kawasaki and Suzuki dealers. I was surprised to see that Helix HX5 makes up almost half of their oil stock. I asked the salesman in which bikes they use the HX5 to which he replied that they use it in all new bike, including super bikes. Apparently they switch over to Motul after about 20 000km.

Yes you are flogging a dead horse. Read the 10 years of 28 pages to see why.

Oil filter from Start line in edenvale.

Read the oil spec sheet in your handbook.

JASO MA ie motorcycle oil. Also buy from Startline
I like to drink lots of beer??
