What Oil should I use?

Hi all. I just checked my 750 today. Purchased New on Saturday. The Engine Oil level is low. I have a bottle of Valvoline 20w50 V Twin oil. Conventional. And topped it up. Only took a few ounces. Yes I did check it Upright. Cold. Level was below the X. My father needs to check his.

What I am trying to figure out is, API and MA2?

Thanks all.

With a cold check the oil is only supposed to barely be on the dip stick. If you went above that you over filled it and need to remove oil until the level is where it should be. The full, x, and add 1/2 marks are for a hot check only.
