RE: oil capacity?????and what oil to use?

the guy at the local yamaha dealership told me his maxim took 2.9 quarts of oil on a change with filter which makes sense because it\\\´s stamped on the engine 2500 cc\\\´s and i\\\´m sure 400 cc\\\´s will be needed to fill the filter container. He also told me to use Yamalube 20-40, and if i wanted to go synthetic, to use the hondaline brand. I\\\´m sure any motorcycle specific oil you have at your local auto store will work just fine,they may not carry the filter though.
