whole mess of questions....

hey guys i got a bunch of questions that dont really fit in one category so i figured i would post them here.

I got a 2000 fe400e and so come the questions...

1. what oil do you guys use? any particular brand or weight? i see on the owners manual says synthetic 5w-50 just wanted to know what your opinion was

2.plastics any companies make them for my bike? (i know theres 400 threads for this but i didnt see one for my bike)

3. the bike has a trailtech speedo on it when i got it but its missing the magnet on the rotor, is there a way i can tell the model number of the computer so i know what magnet i need to order?

4. key ignition, my bike dosent have one, did they come like that? i can install one almost anywhere on the ignition wires because its like a toggle switch right? any better place than others?

thats all i can think of right now im sure i have more questions, thanks in advance for the help!

-For the key ignition, you don't need it and I think they were made without. Just use a good chain when you leave it somewhere.

-For the Trailtech, just search the model you have (I think most people have the Vapor) and then you can order the magnet and other stuff if needed.

-For the oil: I use Motul 5w50, but Motorex, Motul, Denicol and other good brands are the same. Make sure U use the right liquid number like 5w50 or 10w50 and make sure it's specially for bikes and full synthetic (or halfsynthetic if you just placed new stuff in the engine).

Any magnet will work, its just a magnet that needs to be strong enough to close the reed switch.

Delo 400 is my oil of choice.
