Thanks, so assebly this on this parts? But what about the buzzing? I paste down below to engine from 3 days ago. What about bought 1 spacer new (because one looks veery good), and change washer from gear side from 1.4 to 1.6/1.8? Then will be gap +- 0.6mm. Now its 1-1.1mm, take a sound of engine, im preety sure that noise like buzzing from washer in engine, maybe its clutch but i dont think so...

Everything looks ok, washer and spacer like in the pictures. Washer from the generator and gear side they are both 1.4mm. But the gap between the washer and spacer is around 1-1.1mm. Is it necessary to adjust the gap in 05 (newest generator) as in the 0.6-0.9mm service?

Thanks for help and sorry for bad english :(

sextaafondo I'd say that all units need the upgrade up to the serial number indicated.
Better safe than sorry, it'd worth checking out in what condition are your generator components. It's not an easy job, so if you don't trust your mechanical skills better get this done by a professional. There are precise tolerances to check out and reinstallation of the generator in the engine needs to be taken care of with attention to precision as indicated on the bulletin.

ZX10 "All units of race and press bikes before Engine No. 018111 are eligible for this repair"

What is the real world experience on engines after engine no. 018111? Do they need this done too as something that wears down with mileage and higher RPM living? If all of them need this then wouldn't it negate swaping it with a complete 05 generator? I went through most of this thread and I am getting confused as to if all first gen's are going to need this with mileage or only the ones that are part of the bulletin.
