Hi, welcome to the forum, and to owning a 950t. Love mine! Oil is pretty much a personal choice. Dont thibk you can wrong with what bevo and OVSM recommended. The 950t loves upgrades. Ive added aftermarket exhaust, fuel processor, and LA choppers xxx open air kit. Really woke mine up and i still get great mileage. Spend a few extra bucks and get a good manual, and you wont regret it. Send us some pics, and you got a pretty good deal from where im sitting. Ride safe!
