yes, 5wt is recommended and seems to be the most popular choice for a sportbike and with racers too..

I tried 7wt before and I couldn't get the rebound right. it was just too thick. it was causing my tires to wear too fast at the track. went back to 5wt and it made the bike much better.
and you only need one quart for both forks.
