Shimming the springs won't solve the problem if your bike is a Ti valved bike (I didn't see any info on your bike in the post). Sure, the shims will create more seat pressure but it won't affect the spring rate (built in to the spring); the springs are still designed for the lighter weight Ti valves. The heavier SS valves need higher spring rates to keep them under control otherwise at higher RPM's you will start to float your valves. This will both act as a rev limiter and potentially create contact between piston and valve. Believe me this is the last thing you want after spending the money to fix your current problem. At best you will hurt your performance and burn your valves, at worst you'll grenade your engine. Spend the money and do it right.
