87 is fine.

do these bikes come with a tool kit?

speaking of tool kits, does the key actually lock / unlock the tool box on the left side
Yes, although the lock is easily gummed up with dirt.

and to check oil level, I'm assuming the bike should be warmed up, held upright and the dipstick placed in the filler hole, but NOT screwed in?
