    Shimming for a Farthing Plate?

    Anybody that has actually ran one of these in stock form have a suggestion as to how I should shim it for a first ride? I need to shim it because of course the mounting holes don't match up with the stock plates. Ideas? I know some tweaking will be involved, just looking for a base to start at.

    start with the stock shim plates if you still have them, should be a bolt and ride plate, after base line testing, try with less and or shims in the front or rear till you get what your looking for,

    Thats the problem, the stock shim plates won't fit because the holes don't line up. I need to see if this thing will even bolt on I guess. If not I'm not gonna wait another month and a half they can just get me a refund and I'll look into one once they figure out what the hell they are doing!
