On the recommendation of the suspension shop that re-bushed and sealed my forks last year, I put 10W-15W in the left fork and 7W in the right one. Seems to work good for me. YMMV.

Thanks Andi and Forest
I will have a go. To be honest I can't remember what oil went in at the change. I threw the bottle away. I think it was elf moto.

Also, the fork oil I used is synthetic and my bike is non ABS, if that makes any difference to the fork internals from yours.

+1 on the synthetic (BelRay 7W over here), way less dilution, no discoloration, long life, noticeable reduced wear on parts.
