http://ortofon.de/ should give you the weight. It should also give you the range of tracking force. To get the right weight you can use a stylus balance. The electronic ones are expensive but good. The mechanical ones are not great but better than nothing. I set my turntable up with an Ortofon-branded mechanical balance for weight, and a test record for tracking force.

The manual for the SL1200 (same machine but silver, acccording to an online reviewer) says:
"An auxiliary weight may be necessary between the
cartridge and headshell, mostly in a DJ application.
Many new cartridges and new turntables come with
these weights. If you cannot achieve the recommended
tracking force, then this weight is what will be needed."
