      Buy a battery, it's cheap insurance. Sand the battery terminals and connectors on all sides to bare metal to ensure a good connection.
      Oil... as long as you use motorcycle specific oil (wet clutch compatible) you're fine, but Victory oil is 20W-40 which is hard to find.

      Probably holds less than 4-1/2 quarts with a filter.
      Passenger seat is 4 bolts. Comes right off, looks fine without.

      Now for the bad news... That bike is 11 years old. Regardless of mileage, rubber parts don't last that long. All the fuel lines, the throttle body adaptor (intake manifold), and cap-offs on the side of the throttle body are suspect. You don't want intake leaks. You should replace the fuel filters too.





      Additionally, tires expire after 5 years. There is a 4 digit number on the sidewall. It is the week and year the tire was made.



      Tires are cheap... $206 for the pair w/free shipping.
      Front $93 BRIDGESTONE G851F 130/70ZR-18 M/C 63W, FRONT
      Rear $113 BRIDGESTONE G850R 180/55ZR-18 M/C 74W, REAR

      Great information. Definitely some things I never would've thought about but seriously helpful. Thank you for your reply and although you may have called that bad news, I take it much better to be on top of that!
