Every single specification of above oils are mentioned now to practical level…the above mentioned  5100 4T 15W-50 and 7100 4T 20W-50 is tested  with Yamaha R15, Karizma-R, CBR 250R and Pulsar P220 DTS-i and Apache RTR 180.

To compare the fact ,the bikes were hit with higher rpm with a longer run of 200 kms.The first noticed difference  which we could effectively identify was that  5100 does seems to be a lot smoother but with 7100 though it feels harsher but the bikes felt aggressive with acceleration and better top end too.

5100 4T 15W-50

  • For Tvs and Bajaj engines the  Motul 5100 15w50 acts like god by reducing the vibrations
  • Drain interval for Yamaha and Honda engines is 500 kms extra than DTS-i and RTR  engines ,as their Drain Interval would be 2000 to 2500 kms .
  • If we hit lot kms in days (100+) 5100 is the good for you as even after 250 kms of hard and higher RPM highway ride in hot summer, engine tested in such conditions were  really felt calm and sound free.

7100 4T 20w50

  • Acceleration was far more better than 5100 along with nice figures.Engines were harsh for bajaj and Tvs engines.But for bajaj and Tvs to enjoy the acceleration benefit, they really should stick with 5100 .
  • For a city ride (traffic riding ,stop and go)7100 performs better than 5100 it’s because that the bikes felt a lot more responsive as per it’s enjoying the benefits of acceleration.
  • Better mileage compare to 5100.
  • It is noticed that for honda engines and  for yamaha it can clock around 4500 kms.

By comparing both oils standards in practical level both oils are extremely good if we check about protecting the clutch wear and engine both 7100 and 5100 do the task smoothly even both oils manages the lubrication job far more better than other oils which are vailable in market now .Now about the feeling of riding here lies the different feeling of both oils.

by paying extraa 200 bucks over 5100 you can buy 7100 which will give some extra kms of engine oil life this is prefered for Yamaha and Honda engines.For Bajaj and Tvs engines it’s 5100 we prefer it’s because it’s the best choice for it.

If you love to ride which says if  you ride long the best oil prefered is 5100 caouse nothing can beat this oil.But if you are looking for speed choose 7100
