Use 20w40 SF or SG motor oil in the gear box, 20w50 in hot states like Texas. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Without filter change it takes 3.1 quarts. With filter change it takes 3.3 quarts.

What level should the engine oil on loncin lx 125-2 should be

The motor is based on the Honda 50/70/90 motor. I'm not certain of the oil capacity but I do know this- The dipstick is not screwed in to check the oil level. Unscrew it, wipe it and dip it into the crankcase (don't screw it in)for the correct oil reading. Honda states oil capacities of between .8 and 1.0 liters.Should be pretty close but don't overfill it.Good luck!

How many quarts of oil does it hold? and can i use a good motor oil as long as it meets SL and SJ specs like the bike calls for or does it have to be motorcycle oil?

look on the engine case nearest the dipstick for a "CC" designation...All quarts of oil show a "CC" measurement on their bottle...Use that designation on the engine and do the math to arrive at the capacity. You can use ANY oil you want within the correct weight ie: 15/40W. I'd recommend Shell Rotella Synthetic 15/40W about $5 qt at Walmart.
My best guess on capacity is near 1.8qts...Why not add 1.5 qts and check using the dipstick?
Good Luck
