I use Honda GN4 oil but any oil that is safe for wet clutch applications will work. Note that most automotive oils contain friction modifiers that will cause your clutch to start slipping. If it's safe for wet clutch applications, it will say JASO MA on the bottle.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Yes, it has a clutch on the inside of the engine. The 250EX has an auto clutch. Actually, it has two clutches........a centrifugal clutch and a change/shift clutch. It just doesn't have a manual clutch lever.

Sorry, I didn't see the part about the new washer. You must have edited it after I read it. Like Shadetree said, you can reuse the old washer.
