Are you following the procedure? The manual says to ensure the angle is 90 degrees.
It is important to do it right, and there is no question the manual and Yamaha's direction on that are surely right.
I personally do not understand why they specify that tool instead of a pin socket. It is too easy to get the torque wrong depending on how one holds the tool and wrench. Either way, you need some kind of tool, so it doesn't really matter if you buy their specified tool. Why go rogue and take a risk that a random someone might be misleading you...
My best guess on the center-center distance of their tool is very close to 3 inches. I got that by taking a photo of the tool and scaling the dimensions based on the diameter of the nut.
I attached an image of that website's results for various lengths of E. I always get the same results until E goes over 50% of the torque wrench length. There is an inflection point there, I bet...
