The engine oil is the gear oil, and vice-versa. You will need to familiarize yourself with the oil change procedure, because it's a dry sump system, and if you do it wrong, you'll make trouble for yourself.

Here's some instructions for the 250F (same procedure, use the info for the early model):


And here's a link to download a manual:
