Thanks for the pic Northyork! So I guess it's just a block off for the upper bolt hole at the bottom of the shock so the assembly worker doesn't screw up. Back to the garage I go!

E or S?

If an E, it got a better cam chain tensioner from 03 on, but I think most of the rest is the same. Avoid an 07 - bad carb.

That said,...

I'd go for a 1997 ZX9R. The last year of that 94-97 generation. Big, extremely fast, comfortable ergos. I had bought one after owning a 1995 VFR, and it was better in every area.
