Castrol 4t most people use. Non-synthetic.

I used sheel active 4t or some crap like that.

About 800-900ml it should hold.


Read this:

Your going to be in need of help when you get your new bike so take a look at these threads (This is a basic thing to what you should do to your bike once you get it):

First thing you do to the engine is drop the shipping oil and put in some new stuff:
- Shell Advance 4T Motorbike Oil - 15W-40, 1 Litre - Supercheap Auto
- Castrol Activ 4T Motorbike Oil - 15W-50, 1 Litre - Supercheap Auto

Then check your valves... VERY IMPORTANT!!:

As Bully said, Castrol 4T is the most commonly used oil and you can get it fairly cheap at Supercheap Auto, Repco, AutoBarn etc.

Get some pics up!
