  1. Hey members! My motorcycle manual says (1999 honda hornet 250fx) it need 10w40 motor oil. I was searching all over colombo to find it. The only motorcycle specific oil that I found was motoul fully synthetic oil. Since I'm not running my bike that much, I feel like it's over kill for my purpose. Also I'm a little worried about running fully synthetic in my old and small engine.Could you please tell me if you have seen 10w40 mineral or semi synthetic oil around in sl? If it's not there can I import it?

    Buying A Motorbike

    I recommend a honda xr 250 newer model supermorard bike. It's economical as well as easy to maintain.

    Unable To Find 10W40 Motorcycle Engine Oil

    Hey guys thank you for your valuable inputs. I'm planning to change my oil soon. I will update the thread when I do so. @hoonigan some people have experienced engine over heating issues because of fully synthetic in this particular engine.
  5. Hey friends! I found this article on Rawaya news paper. Wanna know what you think about it. Sorry I couldn't find the english version though.
  6. Hey folks! I'm curious about these two cars. One of my friends told me that both the cars have same engines and the 2007 Premio is designed for people over 40 and Allion is designed for young people with the sporty looks. According to him allion is lil cheaper than Premio but the second hand value is lower than alion because some body parts/chrome parts or that sort of stuff are hard to find. Also I'm interested in buying one of these cars but I seriously don't know what's the best choice for our country. I'm going to sell it after 5years so it should have a good second hand value too. Experts please enlighten me. 2007 Allion 260 2007 Premio 260

    Axio.is It A Really Good Car?

    That's the only car reasonably priced between belta and allion in 20011 now those cars are over priced. Lot of people bought it during 2011.

    Motorcycles In Sri Lanka

    Since I'm also a huge fan of sports motorcycles like honda cbr1000 and yamaha r1 (I don't own any and don't have money to buy either ) I am keeping an eye on gazettes and legal stuff. I have not come across any of this above mentioned information. The current law is bikes under 450cc can be registered. I have posted a copy of the gazette in here for proof.

    Toyota Allion/premio

    Allion is not that bad and it's not super economical either. We also have one and it's a good family sedan. It has a good market value even in japan. But I must say it's not a racing car it's good for a small family. It's not good for European long highways either. But for our beautiful island it's enough I think. We can't change our local market too and 4M means a lot to a Sri Lankan so when spending on a car they go according to the trend. That's why Allion is that popular in Sri Lanka. Other jap cars in the same range are slightly low in price because our people prefer Allion as it has toyota badges. I also agree to that. But I don't agree to insulting any kind of car owner since our country is a developing country and people have a very limited budget to buy a car. I also personally think that honda civic sedan is better than toyota allion in many ways but when me and my had had to decide i said civic dad said allion he thinks about the resale value because he is not a rich person and money is very hard. I think that's why most of the people here in Sri Lanka are going for the same trend although they know that its not the best car ever. (I'm expecting a lot of negative comments to this but I'm being honest) Please correct me if I'm wrong! Thank you!

    Importing A Super Bike To Sri Lanka

    According to the above posted gazette now we can bring down 450cc bikes from 18rh may 2012 onwards. But I have no real life examples for this. This is a good news for all bikers in SL. Because of this new law we can finally bring down a cb400 super four brand new bike since it's still manufactured and it's the only 4 cylinder 400cc bike available. Also we can bring down DRZ400SMs too.http://www.honda.co.jp/CB400SF/price/

  17. Dear Members, Today I saw some cars, vans, lorries, bikes and double cabs with redcross logo in the bare land where normally shockman auction happens near mc. The gates were closed so I could not find any info. There was a board saying "prasidda vendesiya" though. Does anyone here know any info about it? Thank you for reading. Please post any info you know.

    Looking For A 4Dr5

    You are welcome. Please try week end papers and web sites you will find one for sure.
  20. I've heard that if you are a registered cab service company and if you want to import a fleet of vehicles under the company name, you are eligible to apply for a duty free permit. I'm not sure about this though. I think I've seen this on a news paper sometimes back.

    If you cover the silencer from hand and listen to the engine when it's idling,if you hear a chain slipping noise that means your timing chain is busted right?
