Angry F U racetech

Just received my set of gold valve emulators from racetech, which are supposed to fit my 86 ninja 250. I took one side apart and the things don't fit. I already pulled the old oil seal out and have all the parts cleaned up ready to go. I have not drilled the extra holes in the damper yet, so I'm stuck!!!! I called the company today and they made me fill out a sheet with the measurements, but have not responded since then.

I just want to get this thing back together, does anyone in the local area stock the gold valve emulators?? I have FEGV S3501 and will likely need FEGV S3301. It would be great if someone had these in stock and wouldn't mind doing a swap so my bike doesn't sit up on stands for 2 weeks while they get this all sorted (thanksgiving coming up and all).

I bought my racetech parts through Motorcycles Unlimited, and while I doubt they have yours in stock, mine didn't take long to come in. Is it possible that you have forks of a newer bike on your 250?

No, they are stock. 86-87 had fork tubes with 35mm outer diameter, while 88-07 had 36mm OD. One of the emulators looks like it would fit in, but with very little clearance (probably a few hundredths of a millimeter) and the other one is too large altogether. Racetech specifies that it should have at least .5mm clearance from the inside of the tube. I considered taking the radius of the gold valve down a few tenths of a millimeter, but there are a few places where the wall thickness would be a problem.
