Definatley not 5 quarts! Im not sure what the 4300ml is, but i would suggest about 2300ml to be correct, about two and a half liters. You should have an oil level dip stick, or a oil level sight glass on it. Do not put 5 quarts in it. My V6 car holds 5 quarts max. You need to find the oil level marker and go with that.

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

Oil change frequancy

There are several schools of thought on this. Some say you should change your oil every 3000 miles; others say every 6000 miles is fine. In any case, you should change it every 3 months.
