I think 10w should be fine ;)

If you want to "Stiffen" the front end up go heavier...Maybe 15w.

I used 10w in both of mine without problems but did add a few cc more to reduce the air gap & stiffen the front, I think it was 5cc more but try it on the stock measurement first, its easy enough to add a little if you want & not that hard to change it for a heavier weight if you really need to

I think PJ1 still sell odd weights eg 12.5 etc if you really want to get into it
for a better power to weight ratio DIET !
