    make sure you purge the system after to get any air out of it. jack up the rear tires and run the sticks forward and back for afew min. it should make a loud whining sound, thats the air coming out of the system. yea that oil will work, i use 15w-30 personally. like that viscosity. while your at it, replace the hydro filter, since the hydro oil is something you only change occasionally.
