SP2 Kyle/Ohlins NIX 30 fork height

Hey I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what groove the little steel clip attached to the upper fork tube goes. I am sure it was in the lowest groove when I removed the forks. Does that clip slide up inside the stock clipons? If that's the case, Kyle tells me to lower the forks in the clamps 12MM to get back to the same stock length. Doing this still puts the black Ohlins fork cap above the top triple, although the Kyle instructions lead me to believe it should be lower. Anyone have a pic or a measurement from the highest point on the fork cap to the triple? I'll contact Kyle on Monday, just trying to get it done today. Thanks.

Mike told me to throw that clip away, and don't worry about it.
He was also specific on how to measure the for the 12 mm's your looking for.
From the top of the top clamp to the top of the fork tube, not including the cap/nut.

I have mine set at 8 mm's, for my bikes specific stup.

Thanks for the info, the problem I have is that Kyle told me to lower the forks 12mm in the triples from stock. That puts my fork tubes flush with the triple. The bottom of the fork caps are flush with my triples. Does that sound right? I should have measured them as stock before I pulled them!

Ok, it looks like the SP2's came through with the fork height set on the first line on the tube flush with the triple. If this sounds right I can work from there. Anyone able to verify this?
