First Oil Change with New Bike

I picked up a 2005 CRF450R two days ago, and I absolutely love it. :worthy:

Now its time for me to do my first oil change. I dont have a manual for the bike, so I need to know what oils to use, and how much.

I have a new bottle of Maxima MTL Fluid 80 wt. Could I use this in the tranny? How much of it?

And what should I do for the motor oil? Any old 10w40? How much of it?

lots of people use the Shell Rotella T deisel oil. 700cc on each side. The Rotella does not work well in my transmission side for some reason so I use the 80w Honda transmission oil. Do a search you will come up with lots of different options for oil.
