i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler

10w40 or 10w 50. Either will do fine.

SOURCE: where is the oil filter on my yamaha V-star 1100

On the right side of the bike (right side when ou are sitting on it) just above the rear brake lever behind a small circular plate. remove the plate and the oil filter is inside (you will easily see it). Warning---on these bikes you have to drop the front exhaust header and right floor board in order to change the oil filter unless you install a after market oil filter relocation kit. If you plan on changing your own oil it is highly recommended to install this relocation kit.

SOURCE: confused over what weight of oil to use

OK the consensus on air cooled is 20w50, if you don't get stuck in traffic when it's above 80 degrees outside 10w40 gives you better protection when it's cold.

SOURCE: what type of oil for forks & how much per side

Some Yamahas only give measurements from the top of the tube down to the oil. There are instructions in the service manual.
