That depends on where you live (subtle hint to put your location in your profile). In any place that stays above 50 degrees most of the year I wouldn't use 5 weight anything.

You realize you've opened up a can of worms oil what oil to use.

About the only thing everyone can agree on is to stay away from any oil that says it can extend your mileage or has teflon in it. Wet clutches have a real hard time gripping the plates with some of the additives they put in those types of oil.
