Question about 2005 Buell Firebolt XB12R
Use a motorcycle specific oil. in your pimary case Either spectro, royal purple, or even HD's branded oil. automotive oils will ruin your clutch due to molybendum-disulfide in the oil as a "friction modifier". The primary oil is drained down by the kickstand and filled through the round hole hy where your shifter foot is when riding.
For engine oil a 10-40 or similar full synthetic is the choice of riders "in the know" but good old dino juice will do the trick too. Engine oil is drained from the bottom of the swingarm and refilled through the cap on top. Many people drain the primary by accident the first time.
