Any oil with the JASO MA motorcycle certification. 10w-40 for cold climate, 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label. It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oil will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. You will need 4 quarts of oil , an oil filter, and a new aluminum sealing washer for the drain plug.

Did you check your oil? If it is low you need to add some.

Check oil light could mean either low oil volume (low on oil) or your oil sending unit is not pumping oil or that you have some much gunk build up that your oil ports have clogged up.
