i would buy the correct shims instead. They are precision ground and hardened and any shop that can accurately grind them will probably charge the same amount as a new shim.Jimbonaut said:Borrowed a big ol' bag of shims and got to work on the valve clearances, now that I have switched out the 750 cams for 900 cams. Got pretty close too. Between 0.004 and 0.005" on the intake (with one at 0.003") and 0.004 and 0.005" on the exhaust (with 2 at 0.003)
Need to machine a couple of exhaust shims down 3/1000" and then I'm in pretty decent shape.
I think I used two. Didn't have the bike for long after, but they seemed fine.Jimbonaut said:There are, and there's also a supplier here in Canada (vintagecb750.com) that sells them. Not OEM though. Anyone used the non OEM (K&L??) shims? All good? Not all good?
