Hi Yamaha lowers!

In some threads it´s confusing about:
1) Motor oil
2) Gear oil
3) Transfer oil

If I understand it right, then motor oil and gear oil is the same,
and transfer oil is the thicker one (SAE80/90W)?

Noticed this is your first post. Head over to the New Members Introduction thread and introduce yourself so we can get to know you.

On the oil question:
Keep in mind that the engine oil in this bike does lubricate the gearbox. The only thing the gear oil lubricates is the primary chain. For that just use any Hypoid 80W90 GL5 and it's exactly what you would get if you bought the Yamalube stuff. If you want to use synthetic then it would be 75W90.
