there is a oil check bolt on the clutch side of the motor you let the motor warm up than unscrew it and a little oil should drip out, if it milky that means there is water in the oil it's best to just drain it and put fresh oil in it.

The motor gets oil from the pre mix you mix in your gas. The tranny will almost accept any kind of oil you want. I prefer ATF type f, others like the shell rotella, and others won't use anything but the maginc Honda labeled oils.

that's what I have, if it's for the bottom end than 4 stroke motorcycle oil is fine, for the gas mix you want 2 cycle oil,

No need to check it, just replace it every 5 hrs or so. 10-40 motor oil nothing fancy, The 02 oil check hole is off. I recommend draining it when warm. and put in the specified amount. Thats how you check it.

It's an 02 250?

Your spec should be 22 US oz at draining- normal service.

24oz after any complete disassembly.

Pay little attention to oil check hole, except as reassurance that some oil exists. It's usually drips much sooner than the 22 oz spec.

Drain bolt 22 lbf ft.

Sae 10w-40

Nondetergent,vegetabe,or castor based transmission clutch oils are not recommended.
