Using 75W-90 or 75W-140 when changing oil in transmission/final drive

Did any of you see any advantages using 75W-140 over the 75W-90 the bike comes with from the factory? I heard that there are quite some dealers who move to 75W-140 during the 1000KM service, while some others stay with the same type of 75W-90.
