You need to use motorcycle specific oil only.

10w40 on the oil. Be sure the bike is upright and on level ground when you check it. As for the coolant do you mean Engine Ice? If you do I run it but IMHO it doesn't do anything that normal coolant will do but it's biodegradable and a bit more pet friendly. They have two types, one that is only good to +32f and one good to -27f so if you need antifreeze be sure to get the right one.

I wouldn't use a fram on such a nice bike. Hell, i wouldn't use a fram on anything I own but that's just me. There has been research done that shows fram is garbage. Use what you want but I would only use K&N or suzuki filters. K&N's have a nut on the end so no need for a filter wrench plus it's pre-drilled for safety wire.
