Either 10W40 or 20W50.
I used a good synthetic motorcylce oil but if you want to use regular oil thats ok as long as you change it at its normal time.

SOURCE: what is the best kind or type of oil to use when

Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell.

SOURCE: 1980 yamaha 400 xs starter spins engine doesent turn over

The starter clutch needs to be replaced. At the other end of that chain is a wheel with a couple slots cut at angles. Inside each of these slots is a small cylindrical piece of metal. The whole unit fits over the end of the crankshaft and because of the angle of the slots those cylindrical pieces of metal (which move freely in the slots) will be forced against and grip the crankshaft when the starter is operated. If they become worn down they are no longer able to exert enough pressure on the crankshaft in order to turn it. Buying a starter clutch 2nd hand is not recommended. If you are unable to source one from a bike shop, try and have them made. Take the old ones to an engineering shop. Unless you know how to temper/harden metal of course.
