What is the weight of chain case oil?

I use "Shell Synthetic Snowmobile Chain Case Oil",but no where on the bottle does it say what it's viscosity weight is. I,m curious because I use it in my Polaris 500 Sportsman ATV tranny since its main internal component is a chain as well.

I use Klotz synthetic, and it's like gear oil. It sticks to the chain/gears and works well.
