The motor oil lubricates both the engine and the transmission. 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 between 3 and four quarts of oil, an oil filter,and a drain plug washer . 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 to circulate the oil, recheck the level, and top up as needed.
If changing the oil filter you will have to run the motor to get an accurate oil level reading.

Where to put in transmission fluid and how to drain when the plug is stuck. What to use for transmission fluid for a 2 stroke


Motorcycle transmissions share the engine oil. When you drain the engine oil and change it you are draining and changing the transmission oil. Good luck
