Assuming it's the same as my Heritage, you take the primary derby cover off, tilt the bike to the side and simply pour it in the side, straight into the clutch assembly. One quart should be the proper amount, but check your service manual to be sure.
You use 20W50 in all three fluid zones, engine, transmission, primary. Preferably synthetic V-Twin oil. Most auto parts stores carry good brands of V-Twin oil - Mobile 1, Valvoline, Quaker State, etc. In a pinch, automotive 20W50 will work, but not recommended, especially for primary and transmission.
Careful to NOT inadvertently pick up the 10W40 sportbike oil. Your Heritage is aircooled, needs a higher heat grade of oil.
