Question about Honda Motorcycles
You have rusted parts inside the tranny, try draining it and filling it up with transmission fluid (ATF), that may free up the works, do not run the engine as it will burn out the bearings.

SOURCE: hoda vf 750 wont start
hello and welcome
with that long of a storage period it is a safe bet that the jets in the carbs have plugged over. this can happen with little as a month or two without proper winterization or fuel conditioning prior to storage. so the carbs will need to be removed and cleaned properly. this is quite the task on the older v4 hondas. and i would reccomend a manual before doing so. after being removed a good can or two of aresol carb cleaner and a small gauge wire to break up builup can clean these carbs out. this is a very very common problem. and im sure you will find this to be the source for your no start. thank you.

if the bike is a shaft drive,then the oil you are referring to is a gear oil only,will be fine in the rear drive unit as most standard hondas use 80-90 as standard....but under no circumstances put this grade of oil into your engine or gearbox,you will destroy the motor in a very short time

I am thinking that you need to change the fluid and replace the brake pads. Over time brake fluid attracts water and it states in the manual that brake fluid should be changed. I change fluid in mine every other year.

put bike on support stand or jack up rear wheel. remove small plastic cover on the left side swing arm and remove nut that anchors brake drum housing to the swing arm support. remove the rear brake linkage from the rear drum. remove the axle nut and slide out axle shaft from axle housing. Be careful to notice the position of the spacer and washers. the installation is the same as removal. be sure to re-adjust the rear brake linkage. If adjusted properly prior to removal it might help to mark the position of the nut on the linkage before removing.

I found the answer on Wiki Answers.
It says :
right 360 c.c. SAE 10
left 380 c.c. SAE 10
I wouldn't use sae 10 however, Honda suggests 5w fork oil. Just changed the fork seals on mine.
