Hi! I presume you are in a fairly warm climate? if so 10W40 synthetic should do the trick as for quantity? Not seeing many of these in my area I can only presume Suzuki still have a SIGHT/LEVEL glass usually just below or aroung the base of oil filler. Wth the bike upright on centre stand the oil should be visible through of the Round sight glass (1/2 way up). So dump your old oil, replace oil filter and remember to put sump plug back? fill with required oil to half way up the sight glass and Bingo!
Hope this helped,
Good luck!

1996 model 550 MXCi. Need to replace gear oil. How much and what type of oil should I use?


oil Only use synthetic high-quality oils (Motorex Power Synt 4T) meeting or surpassing the quality requirements of API classes SG, or SH (for specifications see containers). ! CAUTION ! INSUFFICIENT OIL OR POOR QUALITY OIL RESULTS IN PREMATURE WEAR OF THE ENGINE. Checking the engine oil level The engine oil level can be checked when the engine is cold or warm. To check, place the motorcycle in an upright position on a level surface (center stand). If the engine is cold, the oil level should be visible at the lower edge A of the inspection glass. If the engine is warm, the oil level should be visible at the upper edge B of the inspection glass. Add engine oil if necessary. ! CAUTION ! - INSUFFICIENT AMOUNTS OF OR LOW-GRADE ENGINE OIL LEAD TO PREMATURE WEAR IN THE ENGINE. - DO NOT OVERFILL THE ENGINE CASE. - DO NOT UNDERFILL THE ENGINE CASE.  - + 0°C 32°F 15W 40 15W 50

How to change oil in a Honda Reflex Scooter


Things You'll Need
  • Socket wrench
  • 17 mm socket
  • Drain pan
Instructions
    • 1 Move the Reflex to a level, well-ventilated work area and lift it onto its center stand. Start the Reflex's engine. Let it idle in place for 3 minutes, then stop the engine and let it cool for 10 minutes.
  • 2 Unscrew the oil filler cap from the right engine cover, which is located near the rear swingarm below the right passenger foot peg, by hand.
  • 3 Unscrew the oil screen cap, located directly below the oil cap, using a socket wrench and a 17 mm socket. Drain the engine oil into a drain pan for a minimum of 5 minutes.
  • 4 Pull the oil strainer screen out of the oil screen port by hand. Spray the inner face of the strainer screen, facing the engine, with a parts cleaning spray to remove sediment or particles trapped in the strainer. Push the strainer screen into the engine.
  • 5 Replace the oil screen cap O-ring with a new O-ring. Screw the oil screen cap into the engine by hand. Tighten the cap to 14 foot-pounds, using a torque wrench and a 17 mm socket.
  • 6 Fill the engine with 1 quart of 10W-30 API SG motorcycle-grade engine oil, using a funnel. Screw the oil cap into place by hand.
  • 7 Start the Reflex's engine. Let it idle for 3 minutes, then stop the engine. Check the oil level, using the dipstick built into the oil cap. Add 2 oz. of 10W-30 API SG motorcycle-grade engine oil into the engine, if the oil level is below the dipstick's lower level mark. Do not add oil into the engine, if the oil level is at or near the center of the dipstick's upper and lower marks. Screw the oil cap into place by hand.

    Check oil level


    Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on Softail and Sportster models is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck

    How to change oil on a 2003 Kawasaki Vulcan 750 motorcycle? Where is the oil pan plug?


    Firstly run your engine till you reach its normal running temp .The engine drain plug will be found under neath the engine normally at the lowest part .Warm oil drains out of the engine much more quickly that cold oil ..when all the oil stops dripping then remove the oil filter ,make sure that the sealing ring is removed ,take care the oil in the filter will be very hot .replace with your new filter make sure you do not cross thread the oil filter unit and any seals have been fitted . Refit your drain plug and fill up to the required level . start engine ,your oil level will drop because the oil filter will fill up and the new oil will be pumped around the engine. make sure that the engine level is topped up when all the oil has reached all the parts of the engine .Do not over fill the engine as this will cause unwanted pressure .and oil leaks .Remember to replace the oil filler cap and that its tight .
