First Post Questions on 1998 300FW

This is my first post but I've been watching for a while.

I just purchased a 1998 300FW and have a few questions:

1. Is the clutch a wet or dry clutch? Bottom line is do I need to use an engine oil designed for wet clutches?

2. The Owners manual said to use 10w40 oil in the front differental. A local shop uses 80-90 oil in the front, middle, and rear. Is there a problem with this?

3. What are some areas I need to take a look at on this atv? I cranks and runs fine.
