what forum did you see that on? I've never heard of anyone shaving their bushings on their UCA's. Could just replace your bushings

they were old post from 02, 01. and they spoke of removing the upper rubber bushing then remove the metal insert. after that cut 2 to 3mm off the length of the insert and reinstall with some lube.

BTW i just did the fix minus the floor mod and it worked wonders solid as a rock now over bumbs and up to 130mph no problem.

It's not on the UCA. I'm pretty sure he means the upper rear shock mounts. The TSB that shows the fix says to use new upper shock mount parts including a bushing that doesn't compress. The old one compresses and creates play, causing the "shock knock".
