I have ordered an owners manual for my bike but in the mean time i want to replace the fluids. The oil seems low as there is a small glass eye on the lower end of the engine (i am guessing its to check oil levels) and it looks almost completely empty, which is unacceptable.
I have a few questions regarding the oil, gear oil in shaft and brake fluid.
My old man is an Amsoil dealer so i want to get Amsoil for the bike. On this page, this seems to be the oil for my bike but it says "Not recommended where an API GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required."
I have no idea what that means :/
I have no idea what the specs are for the shaft gear oil or what kind of brake fluid is acceptable for the bike.
This is a link to the amsoil page: http://www.amsoil.com/catalog.aspx?code=MCFQT-EA
I would appreciate it if someone can tell me if i can run the Amsoil in this bike without a problem. Also, if i can use the Amsoil gear fluid for the shaft let me know what kind is best... Same for the brake fluid
Thank you in advance for the assistance
PS I live in Los Angeles where the tempature averages around Mid to High 50s - 60s at night during the winter and 70's during the day. Its about 80 - 90 during the summer.
If anyone has the Mean Streak and has experience changing the oil, any first hand experience is appreciated!
