Does anyone know if any other shims will work besides the Yamaha ones. I know on my Triumph Sprint that I had the Kawasaki shims were the same.

there is a model of toyota that has the same shim sizes, not sure what model.
My yamaha spare parts dude (very clever man, especially for a dealership worker) told me this as I was purchasing a 120 shim (smallest yamaha make) for my centre inlet valve :cry:
New valves are on the way.
I'm doing some pre release testing for a new aftermarket Ti valve company, I'll let you know how they go when they finally get here.
