There are alot of different variables that can affect the recommended oil level height. For my weight/riding style/and valving I have always run 95mm.

Others will be different.

I have the same bike Yamakaze and I was curious how much do you weigh? I just set mine to stock levels when I replaced the fluid a year or so ago but I did go up to 7.5 wt oil to help resist bottoming but I noticed that it seemed to be a bit on the harsh side. I am around 215 without riding gear.
