How's the experience with shell advance?
Post-3000 km, it's still flying in mid rpms, no vibrations, but level is dropping, which shouldn't be the problem with oil. Switching back to 5100 since I couldn't get Shell Advance Ultra for cheap. Current price bump in 5100 is making me look forward for something else.

Washing regularly doesn't cause rusting issues in some areas?
Not necessarily. Almost washing every 2-3 weeks for the past 9.5 years.

Dipstick O-Ring - 932101980900 - ₹ 5.00
Cheap, yet significant part. I see most mechanics reluctant to replace them. ASC never replace them, even upon request. Garages use gasket maker over them instead of replacing.

Effect will be vapor leak. Most will neglect, but over a period, the oil escaped will be good enough.

New vs old. Visually one can't easily make out the damage.

New one installed. Now that closes with some tightness felt. 500 km past, no signs of any vapor leak.

At how many intervals should i use formula 1 scratch out paste on my bike?
When I'm applying the paste on my bike it easily removes most of the scratches but buffing pad and microfiber cloth also become red in color. Is scratch out paste harming my bike paint?

Can you suggest any good paint sealant and wax both. Currently using formula 1 wax.
Turtlewax is good. Formula 1 also good, but lots of fakes. 3M got liquid waxes.

Frequent buffing can harm the paint. Buff only when necessary, do waxing frequently. I don't follow any interval. When it starts becoming dull, start waxing.

How's the liqui moly engine oils?
Mixed review. Again, more fakes than originals. Try only if you could get from genuine dealer. They are also costlier comparing Motul and all.

April 2019:

Brake shoe has become one of the frequently changed parts nowadays, like every 5-7k km, thanks to grooves in the rear drum.
