Hi and welcome.
1 A straight sae 40 oil will be fine.
2 It's around 2/3's of a gallon
3 You do have a dipstick. It's your finger. Just unscrew the oil cap and stick it in. :D

Thanks for the informations,

Another request...
I search a document, datasheet for 500 OHC, because my bike's old papers does not contain the HorsePower, weight, etc... correctly
The near future my bike will go to traffic exam, and will get new EU papers and these datas needed for new documents.

Thanks

Do only use monograde 40 or 50 without detergents if you haven't fit an filter.
Multigrade will crack and destroy your bearings.

Years ago when I had mt 323 600 i used Belray 50w which was a detergent oil. I had the oil level about 1" below the filler cap
I also increased the oil drip to the Cams a fair amount , At 90 drips pr minute seem pretty low .Maybe thats why they all wore out .
