The Virago uses 20W-50 oil in warm weather. If you ask any bike shop they will recommend moving to a 10W-40 in cold weather down to about 30ish F, and if you plan on riding down to extreme temps of about 20F and below, then a 5W-30 or 5W-40 is recommended. For the 5-7C temps you list, you could really just use the same oil you use for summer. Just take a little extra time in letting the bike warm up and don't ride it hard the first couple of miles to let the oil come up to full temp. If you prefer to err on the side of caution, then use the 10W-40 oil. I had a Yamaha 650 Classic and I used 20W-50 year round and never had issues as long as I made sure to warm it up properly first.

### How to change F to C degrees

for fast conversion use this table:

http://www.rapidtables.com/convert/temperature/fahrenheit-to-celsius.htm

The temperature T in degrees Celsius (°C) is equal to the temperature T in degrees Fahrenheit (°F) minus 32, times 5/9:
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) × 5/9
or
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / (9/5)
or
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / 1.8
Example Convert 68 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius:
T(°C) = (68°F - 32) × 5/9 = 20 °C

### Temperature setting

The fridge should be just above freezing, maybe 2 or 3 degrees celsius. The freezer should be around -15 degrees celsius. The outside temp doesn't matter as far as the settings go.
