Yeah Ive took it off and tried it. That's how I found out it fits in the top perfectly. I'm assuming that whenever kawasaki made this specific tube they had a new guy do it and he installed it upside down or something lol.
I just got off the phone with a different representative from pitbull that called me to follow-up on it. He said it was something peculiar because that is the pin that is supposed to fit into the bottom of it. I talked to him about getting a different pin and he said that is the smallest pin they happen to have and the #6 pin is the exact same only that one has a slight bend to it, which won't work for me obviously.
We discussed it, he said I have three options.
1. Drill into it to make the pin fit properly, assuming there is enough material in the tube to support this option.
2. Take the pin and shave material off until it fits perfectly. Only if i did this option, it will shave the heat treated metal away and more than likely ruin the integrity of the pin possibly causing it to break, they won't guarantee it anymore of course.
3. Buy a new tube assembly that is for sure going to be correct from the factory. That's what he really suggests I do of course.
I would think the pin will be just fine if I shave it down. Again I wanted to get people's opinions. I think the pin is maybe around max 2mm off.
