Hi Lukepentcof.

its 350cc or 11.8 ounces in the Clyma book, but that's for a 1986 onwards model. you can vary the amount you use to suit your style of riding anyways. I doubt it would be that far from the mark.

SOURCE: Fork Oil CBR954

There are three most common weights of fork oil. 5W is a light oil for a smoother ride, 10W is a heaver oil for stiffer suspension and 15W is mainly used for a stiffer ride such as racing. I have found 20W and 25W oils but they are not that common.
If you are a pleasure rider 5W or 10W would be the right oil for you. If you are always "in the twisties" and riding the limits of the bike, go with the 15W.

yes see caps at top of trees caps come off at the bottom of shocks you will find a single think 9 mm bolt to drain oil out. Make sure you drain all the oil up and add the same amount that shocks are required nothing more nore less.....

Most likely cause of not selecting a single gear is a bent shift fork.
Shift forks in motorcycles are what pushes the gears in and out on the shaft to engage them. Rough shifting or missing gears can sometimes cause them to bend.
Replacing them, however, requires removing and completely re-building the engine as the shift forks are right inside.
Alternatively it could be a damaged shift drum, but again it's a case of remove engine, split motor in half and have a look.
For a look at the gearbox itself, go to
and select 'Transmission' and 'Shift Drum/Fork'
