On the right side of the engine casing is a small round piece of glass.

There is a high and a low level indicator beside the glass. Holding the bike level, you should see your oil level somewhere between the two.

These bikes take 3.6L of oil if you are changing the filter at the same time, 3.4L if not. I would recommend always changing the filter and oil together.

Question, why did your bike have no coolant? This is not an idle question. This is a leading question. No coolant is most likely a symptom, not the root cause of the problem.

Sorry to highjack the thread for one second here, but 3.6 and 3.4 sounds kind of extra to me, I always use 3 liters with or without a filter, always had it at full through the glass.

Honestly I got the bike about two months ago so I'm assuming the guy previously and I just noticed it now just cause it was getting hotter and he cold ND hot on my speedo was going up which never happened so I looked into the coolant and none or barely in there so that's why I'm asking what color to put or what exact bottle to buy for my exact bike
I can't seem to find the manual for my specific bike

Mine is also green. Any ethylene glycol based coolant will do.

Just changed my oil and filter on my GT650EFI and it's probably the same engine as yours .
It will take 3.2L of oil .
Easiest way to to do it , get a cheapo plastic  measuring jug and tip out 800ml and add the rest of a 4L oil container (you can buy it in a 4L container) to your bike . Oil level should be spot on .

Just buy some pre-mixed coolant from an automotive store . Anything with ethylene glycol in it should be fine .
Any auto coolant will be fine . Coolant is coolant . It's obviously a bit different for engine oil where bike specific oil is recommended.
You can even buy neat coolant and mix it yourself with distilled water (not tap water).
