Harley fork oil?

Do any of you guys know what weight the factory oil is on a 2012 Road Glide custom?
Harley doesn't give weight - instead they use type "E" or "heavy" I'm trying to find out what the equivalent is on the fork oil that the bike came with.

It's a proprietary mix or so I have been told , E comes in around 7-7.5w , it is very light IMO for a bagger , I changed mine out to the SE heavy , was really stiff for about a thousand miles , but great after that , no nose dive ...

i like the se heavy. some people feel it is too stiff, so they prefer a fifty-fifty mix of type e and heavy.

and i think fork oil falls into one of those, 10 wt from company a is not the same viscosity as 10 wt from company b things too....

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
