Question High quality fork oil equivalent to stock oil weight

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend a high quality racing fork oil for Showa Big Piston Forks?

Also what is the weight of the standard oil.

It'd be good to hear from those that have found improvements running different weight oil, as I may do the same in future.

Thanks.

Looks like SAE 5W is equivalent oil.

Seems quite light.
