There is an oil filler cap on top/side of the case on the right side of the bike with an oil level check stick below.

I now use Yamalube but have used BelRay in the past. No prob with either of them, just get the right visco. for your climate and check/change at regular intervals.

I'm using Motul Semi Synthetic 10W40. What a difference in clutch action and engagement! I mean, wayyy smoother. Best investment next to getting rid of the stock grips for a pair of ProGrip Gels.
