They come up fine for me. Thanks for the explanation. I've never seen that shim material before. Cool. After some more reading around the interwebs apparently the '09 and later forks have lower sliders that are made by showa and are much better quality (slipperier) than the previous WP tubes. Everyone seems to agree that the later lowers as well as the SKF seals are both big improvements.
