5w-30, 10w-30? 10w-40?

Any oil spec'd for wet clutches in ATV's and motorcycles. 10w-40, unless you live in a super cold climate, and then 5w-30 is what mine calls for and what most people use as far as I know, but frankly as long as you have oil in it then you're ahead of the game. ;)

I use honda oil, but you don't have to.
No, it has to be spec'd for wet clutches in ATV's. If you use auto oil the clutch can slip.
Look at the oil. If it looks clean, then just run it for a while. It will be fine.

You know, the color of honey, not chocolate. :)
You can put seafoam in the oil per the directions. Not sure what else to use to flush it with.
