my wifes 250 ninja was a to get into neutral. also when sitting for a few days the clutch plates would stick so getting started would pump the clutch several times before kicking into gear or the bike would lurch and die like no clutch at all.
get u about 4 quarts of oil 10-40 or 20-40. don't really matter which kind, quaker state, valvoline, sure that now someone will hammer me for using auto oil. but like i told my harley friend about how much harley tires and harley oil was. Harley don't make oil and harley don't make tires.
same with oil.
i have 38K on my v-max with various brands of auto oils, no problems
look for the drain plug on the bottom of the bike, get u a pan under there and remove plug. have a rag handy as your hands will get oil on it. drain out, replace plug and put in about 3 quarts of oil. start looking at your site glass with the bike straight up. fill to just above the little mark about 3/4 full in the window. start bike and let idle for a couple minutes. turn off and again look at the site glass. should be mostly full in the site glass. add oil as needed.

later
Michael

you can buy it at Auto zone but you need to find out online what filter size it is cuz I dont think they will know. Also get Mobile 1 red cap or Gold cap. Good stuff.

really depends. Not knowing your bike. I can cross refferance my v-max filter and buy at wal-mart or auto zone. u can take it off and go to auto zone and have the guy look at it. might be able to cross referance the # for something else.

be careful with Automotive filters.
On my bike, it has a bypass built into the filter that will recirculate the oil at "x" ("x" being really low, like 6# or so) amount of psi totally bypassing the filter, this allows for proper oil cooling and the oil gets filtered as it goes through over time. Automotive filters may have the bypass built in too, but at a different psi setting ( like 20-30 psi). The harley oil filters are made for them at a certain spec. I used automotive brands too, but I have to buy a certain one that is bypassed at the same pressure. Some people have damaged their motors by not having enough circulation and their warranty wasn't honored when they discovered the use of wrong filter.
