The stock oil height is 130mm but most run closer to 100mm not sure about the clickers usually about 9 out on compression and 12 out on rebound.

Not sure how you are measureing the oil heigth, but I run mine at 70mm. I set mine making sure that there is no oil in the outer chamber. (meaning no oil between the lower part of the fork and the top part of the fork) I have set-up other bikes in a range between 80mm-65mm. I believe 70mm is equal to around 100mm if you allow oil in the outer chamber.
