Question Buell Blast ('01) owners, need some info please...

Just picked up a 2001 Buell Blast a few hours ago.
It's my first on-road 4-stroke single.
Can't find an on-line PDF file for the service manual and it's gonna be a while before I can get one.
I finally found the oil dip stick. (thought it was a tank hold down! LOL)
It has no oil on the stick!
What typ of oil (weight) do I need to dump in there???? I have a bunch of oil for other bikes, so I'm sure I have the right one.
How/where do I check the trans oil???
Are there any other things I need to check??

The air filter does not seem to fit snugly in the air box. It looks as though the cover is the only thing that holds it in place, but even with the airbox cover properly on it feels loose through the left opening.
ANY info before I start commuting on this thing would be appreciated!
THANKS!!

You might get lucky and find a .pdf manual online, but they've been harder to find as the copyright laws are more widely enforced on the net.

You can put any motorcycle specific oil in the Blast; a multi-grade such as 20-50 is fine, you could use a heavier straight-weight if you're in AZ or somewhere hot. Pick your flavor, synthetic or original crispy Dino.

If air can get by the filter gaskets, it's not going to do much good. Try a new filter, if that doesn't fit well see about a new airbox and/or airbox gasket.

Just crush it into a useless cube and be done with it. That's how much Erik cares about your bike.

Nothing "useless" about those cubes - they make GREAT coffee-tables if you put a thick piece of glass on top of 'em...........

Looking back, was that "foreshadowing", or what?

Thelast929, I'd send you here (Blasts - BuelletinBoard) for all Buell/Blast related stuff. Good peeps & knowledgeable.
