Initially I tried 5w at the recommended height (per 2006 manual). As I noted in the fork mod thread, it's interesting that adding the correct measured amount of oil (again, as listed in the manual) does not result in the correct oil height. But, I decided to go with the oil height recommendation first, to see what the lower viscosity did. It helped, but not enough. For the second iteration I doubled the air gap. I chose that number because most bikes work best with an air gap that is about equal to the total suspension travel. Like everything else that requires fine tuning, it's a good place to start, there may be room for improvement with a little experimentation.
