I have a '02 X9 with a Zero Flex Tower. I was told by the dealer it is 1-7/8".

Depends on the year.

All zero flex towers are 1-7/8"...except '03 and newer X-Star and X-80.

I have a '00 and it's a 1.9, not 1-7/8. I know this for a fact. My dealer also told me it was 1 7/8 but they were wrong. You can always buy a feeler guage for around $6 if you don't know for sure.

1 7/8" is 1.875", which is .025, or a quarter of a tenth of an inch smaller than 1.9 inches, it is 1 7/8"

Well, not wanting to give out incorrect information I just measured 4 towers, model years 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2004 (installed on X-Star and X2). EVERY single one of them measures 1.875 to 1.900 (5 random measurements per tower). Now to put that into perspective the difference between the published specs of 1-7/8" and a measured 1.900" is .025"...put in everyday terms that is the thickness of 5 sheets of copier paper (yes, I measured them). Before anyone asks I used a Mitutoyo 6” dial caliper that was certified accurate last year (10/03).

The difference in tubing diameter can be traced to the tubing itself…this isn’t mil-spec stuff here, combine that with a product that has been clear anodized, bent and welded…and you get some variance that should easily fall within the specs of any aftermarket supplier.

Blake,

Are you sure you got the whole picture?
