We at MotoMalaya are very happy with all the results of the Agip and eni engine oil (EO) test. We have installed the EO on 5 bikes now with different variation of the EO on different bike. The bike included for the tests are 2 Yamaha 135LC, 1 Yamaha Lagenda 115Z, 1 Honda EX5 and 1 Demak DX90. For today, we’d like to share with you the review of the Agip TOUR 4T 10W-40 Synthetic which we have put in the Demak DX90. The Agip TOUR 4T 10W-40 Synthetic is a kind of synthetic EO that have thinner viscosity compared to the normal 20W-50 EO that is widely available in the market. The thinner the EO, the easier the engine parts to move, but too thin, it can make the EO not able to protect the engine parts surface by covering it in a form of film layer. The thin effect of this EO can give smoother ride and better acceleration, but thin EO needs to be ready for the extreme performance when the riders needs it. So, the EO needs to have great shear relialibity so that it won’t ‘tear’ at high temperature and at high speed. Due to this reason, EO manufacturer needs to have a really good engineers to make the thin EO as reliable as normal 20W-50 EO.
Installing the Agip TOUR 4T 10W-40 Synthetic into the Demak DX90 has given us much surprise considering how much the EO can really affects your bike’s engine performance. The immediate results that we can feel is that the bike is superbly have lot less vibration. Nothing has been done other that pouring that Agip into engine. The riding on Demak DX90 suddenly become enjoyable and the short drive back home from the workshop make us want to ride more of the bike. It just feels like it just got a new breath of life.
Then, we thought, this much must be a very expensive oil to be had, but after checking with brochure, it is only RM35, which makes it on par with Motul 5100, which was our favourite brand before. Given the performance and immediate results of an oil change, we are surprised to know that there is really differences in EO.
We now are considering Agip and eni as our new favourite. It is not easy to spot Agip or eni at workshop as I observed here in Banting, Selangor but give a try if you found them somewhere.
