Lowering kit installation question

I just got one of Speedy's lowering kits. If you have installed one, were you able to use the aluminum washer? On mine, the washer is too thick. I should probably use something to fill the gap, just a bit of a hassle finding something.

I actually made my own lowering block and got it down 50mm... being a Metal worker by trade - I made mime out of 10mm Aluminum plate and use high tensile bolts and really works well... then also made a cover and hide the rear shocker too... you can see this in my photo gallery in my profile.... catchya Andreas56

I sent some measurements to Speedy. The shock mount on the swingarm is a little wider on my bike. He's sending me a thinner washer.

Speedy Rocks! I got the new washer today and installed it - slid right in - perfect fit.

My washer was a little tight also, but it's amazing what a few taps of a hammer can do. On and working.
