I get the flashing reserve light at about 180 miles where it will typically take 4.4 gals or so. Reserve is worth another 50 miles or so where it will take 5.7-5.8 to the bottom of the filler neck. (I have run the bike dry to check.) Yamaha advertises 6.0 or 6.08 depending on which docs you read, but I can't get this in unless I burp the tank full above the filler neck which Yamaha says not to do - the consequences are minor for a 49-state bike (possibly fuel overflow to the ground), but more serious for a CA bike (raw fuel into the carbon canister).
