I used Hotcams and bought the whole shim kit (in 7.48mm) so I have some extra. PM me when you know which shims you need. The stealerships are a PITA and too expensive IMHO. :thumbsup:

Any 9.48mm valve lash shim will work. Honda CRF450, KXF450, and I believe the RMZ450 all use this size. The Honda dealer will certainly have some.
