The manual for my 98 WR400 has the standard oil level at 145mm (5.71 in)
Extent of adjustment:
80~150mm (3.15~5.91 in) from top of outer tube with inner tube and damper rod fully compressed without spring.
Be sure to install spring guide when checking oil level.
If you need more info I could scan the pages and send them to you, let me know.

Definately. You may as well change the oil in both, and match them. Also, the more oil/less air will increase bottoming resistance. If you take big air on jumps, you'll notice this. If you are into trail riding, you'll be better off with a lower oil level.
