This is my first time doing valves. You guys are fantastic on this forum and could use a little help. I know there is a lot of info on this. I have looked and read every video or forum on this topic. Maybe I should know the answer, but if you guys wouldn't mind giving me some input. Thanks for the help.
I checked my valves today. As you can see, I believe I'm out on the Exhaust and the Intake. These are some of the question I have. I have a 32 piece feeler gauge, nothing fancy.
- Exhaust measurements - I could not fit a .18mm. I could only fit a 15mm and it felt a tad loose.. I'm thinking a 16mm would fit, but I don't have that gauge. Do I use the 15mm number or 16mm for my measurements for my shims?
- Intake Measurements - I doubled checked. I believe they are accurate at those measurements.
- Do these gauge measurements seem WAY off for a 2007 bike? This is my first time and maybe my measurements aren't accurate. I double checked I was at TDC. All I have heard is, my valves haven't moved in 10 years, etc.
- Are the stock shims part # standard. Should I be able to look at a part list to see what sizes there are for each shim?
