so i have everything off my bike to change the shims. they all need to be changed. how can i know which ones i need to order? the clearance on all the intake and 1 of the exhaust valves. so can i just look at the manual and see what ones came stock and get the same ones? i dont want to buy a hot cam shim kit and just order the single ones by themselves. thanks.

Measure your valve clearance.  If any are less than they should be, you measure (or read) the size of the shim to determine the size you need. 


The manual does not list the original sizes because no two engines went together with the same size shims.  The manual does, however explain the procedure in detail.
