Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard M50
I was about to post for a clarification request, but I guess I'll just answer for both. To check the oil, there is a small little window on the left side of the bike. You basically just look at that window and see if its the right level. If you think your oil might be ready for changing...just do it. I change the oil every summer, and if I happen to put a couple thousand miles on it during the summer, I go ahead and change it again. I don't think there is ever a problem changing the oil too much! Anyways, here is a picture of what the little window looks like. You really have to get down to see it.
For the coolant, you have to remove a frame cover on the left side of the bike in order to view the reservoir tank. It is actually going to be behind the tool compartment. Once you take off the cover by unlocking the compartment with your key, remove the compartment by removing a few bolts. Then you will see the reservoir tank. There will be a low marker and a full marker on the reservoir. I think you can figure out the rest. Here is a picture of the reservoir tank. It is item number 11. You can't really see where it is located, but you at least get an idea as to where its at.
Hope that helps!

NOOOO! Do not put 20w-40w in the final drive!!!
This bike has hypoid gears (beveled gears that create a sliding action across the teeth and therefore energy loss and a lot of heat). A 20W-40W oil will destroy those gears, it can't handle the high friction in the final drive.
You need an SAE90 Hypoid gear oil with a GL-5 rating as defined by the API (American Petrolium Institute) classification system. If you operate your bike in temperatures less than 32 degrees F (0 degrees C), you will need to use SAE80 GL-5 Hypoid gear oil.
