    I would like to change my fork oil but I have no idea what weight the factory put in. The owner's manual says either 5W or 20W? That's a big difference in fork action. If I wanted to increase the action I would put a lighter oil and vise versa but if it's 5W I wouldn't want to go any lighter. Not knowing what's in it now doesn't help much. Does anybody have an idea what MG puts in at the factory?

    BTW: 2007 Breva 750

    Thanks.

    10 weight seems to work well for most folks. That is what I'm using in my 1100 Breva. Heavier oil will give you more damping.
