Your bike is a four stroke. The gear box and engine are one unit. Standard 10w40 oil goes into the gearbox. The gear box oil IS the engine oil.
You need to buy the oil anyway, so why not go to the Kawasaki dealer and, after buying the oil, ask them show you how to check the oil level. Ask them to tell you what maintenance you should do as the owner. Don't be shy. Ask them "what do you mean by that".."where is that part on my bike?"... How often?... and so forth. They will be glad to give you a first hand education on standard maintenance needs.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

The bike has some bent shift forks. Bent shift forks do not move the slider gears properly when changing gears. Expensive to fix.

hi, will the shift lever shift up when the bike is being pushed along, is it stuck in neutral, if its in neutral then push it down make sure it goes into 1st gear then can u get someone to push u whilst holding the clutch in then release the clutch and see if you can jump start the bike that way.
when you push the kick start down is it turning the engine over properly and if so if the compression is really to low then the chances are the piston ring has broke and scored the side of the cylinder if this is the case then you need to get new piston and rings and a new cylinder.
The problem with moto x bikes is they are high power and work at really high temp so parts need changing more often the piston rings need changing every 25 to 35 hours of riding time you need to do this as they ware and brake if used any longer.
you also need to make sure you get the petrol and oil mixture spot on as if its not getting enough oil it will blow the piston and rings so you need to measure exactly the correct mixture.
these bike are expensive to maintain and need new parts on a regular basis so remember this the next time you get the bike running

Your shift lever should be able to be tightened, even if not, as long as the bike goes into gear than its doing its job, if it grinds and jumps out as you say than it is more than likely your shift/selector fork
