Default bringing my schwinn back to life

i commuted on gas bikes for three years. when i got into them there wasnt this level of interest or support. i purchased a scooter alittle over a year ago, and my last bike sat in my hobby room unused. just before i put her up, her clutch was slipping. so im going to clean the clutch pads and clean and blow out the gears and gear case, and relube the gears.
Question: what kind of gear grease should i use ?
also i plan to deck her out this time with a tuned exhaust, shifter kit, a generator and full light set with brake light and turn signals.
Question: should i get the shift kit BEFORE the tuned pipe? or does it matter?
Question: and most basic of all, i cant remember the oil weight and oil to gas ratio
Does anyone have experience with advanced electrical systems and the items needed for the setup i mentioned above? What about cleaning the carb and gas treatment for the engine because they have been sitting?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. i am new at using forums, so im not sure where to go to see replys.
