Fork oil weight?


My fork seals are leaking so I am planning on changing the seals and Fork oil.

I have bought the Suzuki Fork seal kit.

I don't know what oil weight to go with. 5W or 10w?

The forks are stock, I weigh 175lbs.

hope you can help me on this. thanks.

Spec is 5W , if you're just riding around town /normal stuff I wouldn't think you would need to go up to a 10W.
