ok, with the left side being the shifter side, it goes like this
exhaust left valve is .10mm out of clearance
right valve is .029mm out of clearance

intake left valve is .02mm out of clearance
middle valve is in clearance
right valve is .02mm out of clearance

clearance being .2-.25mm for the exhaust and .1-.15mm for the intake

would these clearances make the bike hard to start?

You're still not telling me anything.

What are the actual clearances?

Are they .35, & .28 for the exhausts, and .17, .15, & .17 on the intake?

Or are they .10, & .17 on the exhausts, and .08, .10, & .08 on the intakes.

And how in the world did you determine that the right exhaust is .029mm out of spec, as opposed to .03? Can you really measure one micron with a feeler gauge?

ok, with the left side being the shifter side, it goes like this
exhaust left valve .152mm
right valve is .305mm

intake left valve is .152mm
middle valve is .127mm
right valve is .152mm

these are the guages labeled on the feelers.

Yeah, that's 'cause your using English gauges with the metric equivalent stamped on them. I do the same thing. But remember that .01mm is .4 of .001", so don't even bother with anything beyond two decimals in millimeters.

The intakes are basically perfect. The exhausts need to be shimmed, and the left one could make it hard to start.
