Extra washers and a piece of PVC pipe were included with my RaceTech springs.

I was able to order an oem spacer and necessary washers from the dealer, so that the internals of both fork legs will match. I also received my cartridge eliminator kit in the mail. Both damping rod are 11" long, but have two 2" spacers that can be used if the end user opts to run 9 1/2" damping rods instead of 11", which would raise the front end. Additional parts supplied with the kit are one spring and one aluminum end cap that goes on the end of one damping rod. can anyone confirm whether each damping rod in pre 2016 Irons have an aluminum end cap and spring? Thanks

Your left fork leg (left sitting on the bike) has the cartridge. Right side has a damper rod that doesn't damp but does have the "aluminum end cap" which is the bottoming stop, "oil lock" per the parts book, and a (short) spring which is a topping spring.

That’s what I was hoping to hear. Thanks Tomcatt!
