Default Brake fluid

Hi,
my XL1200c 2005,

went to move it today ,front brake didnt work
so opened master cylinder ,there was no fluid in it
,after a bit of looking around
it seems fluid has leaked out caliper ,though cant see any signs of it on cabin floor, its a new brake New last year only ridden about 3 mile on it ,then put away .
What brake fluid do i need Dot 4 or 5??
thankyou
