If you respect your teeth, go with a lower viscosity. I use Bel Ray synthetic 5W and its still pretty firm.

Do some homework to pick what's best for you if you are moving from what the bike manufacturer recommends. A problem with fork oil is there is no universal standard and the weight numbers are not transferable between the different oil producers. There are some big differences in the flow and therefore the responses you will get.

This is only one reference. Take a look and you'll find more.
