Valve shim Calculations
Posted June 30, 2004 - 03:09 AM
Just working on my friends KLX and were doing the shims, and were trying to work out the new shims required. I tryed to compare it to the WR manual but doesnt go high enough, and the specs are different. Found this on the web, what do you think?
Existing shim + Existing gap – required gap = required shim
1.75 + 0.05 - 0.20 = 160

english to metric; dimension found times 25.4
example; .312 X 25.4 = 7.9248MM
metric to english; dimension found divided by 25.4
10(MM)divided by 25.4 = .3937 inches

I used google for the conversion. Just type what you want to convert in the search bar and it'll do it.
Example: 1.75 mm to inches
