I can't remember what is actually recommended, but I run valvoline 75/140 synthetic in mine.

edit: I would do a complete drain and refill so you are not mixing two types of gear oil. Forgot to mention that in the first post.

Wht gdn says on the drain. Honda recommends hypoid gear oil
(80w90 I think, but not certain for your year).

Someone told me i had to remove the rear wheel to lube the rear end.

Why since it has the drain and fill bolts?

Remove the rear wheel? - they must be referring to the splines on the wheel hub, I only grease that when changing the rear tire, or if I happen to have it apart for some other reason. There is no need to remove the rear wheel to just change the rear end lube. Now if the bike has been sitting for a long time or has not had good maintenance you may want to check the splines for grease, but I have never pulled the wheel off just to grease those splines.
