For those fitting a Auto drop to your FZ/SHO
Fitted an auto drop to my FZ and tested it yesterday morning. BTW it was minus -4.5 degrees centigrade at the slip!
Anyway-lost a bit of top end, and it turns out-IF the steering nozzle is trimmed higher than neutral, the reverse bucket fouls against the trim rod-not by much, but enough sometimes to stop the reverse bucket seating up correctly.
You will need to trim a small sectin of plastic from the bucket to get clearance.
This was FZR, but I assuming ot would be the same on SHO.

Interesting. I've got an auto drop that I picked-up and need to study some more on these. I was under the impression that you either had trim or auto drop but not both?

On the newer ones yoou have both.
Theres a raised section with a hole in that the vts cable with the R&D adapter goes through.
If it's the older one, then you wont have this raised tab
