Use only a JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Automotive oil uses different additives and will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Shell Rotella T Synthetic (15w-40 about $22) and Shell Rotella standard oil ($12 a gallon) for diesel engines , both are JASO MA rated for motorcycles.10w-40 oil is good for cold climate. 20w-50 for hot climate/touring. Synthetic oil will make your cycle run cooler and shift easier. For the engine you will probably need four quarts of oil, a filter, an oil filter wrench for the spin on filter, and a drain plug washer. Place a pan under the cycle spin off the old filter, wet the seal on the new filter with oil and spin on the new filter following the tightening instructions on the side of the filter. Open the drain bolt on the bottom of the motor and hold the bike level to drain all the oil. Replace the drain plug with a new washer and tighten the bolt enough to compress the washer and seal in the oil. Pour in three quarts and check the oil level by placing your motorcycle on the center standard looking at looking at the dip stick. Run the motor and top up as needed. You will probably use 3.4 quarts of oil.
If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading.

Hi, follow the top radiator hose from the rad it will then connect to the thermostat housing the radiator cap is located on the housing, if the rad is full you could simply top up your resovoir with coolant( do not remove cap untill the engine is cold)
