...For valve shims?

My local Yami shop wanted $8 :thumbsup: per shim this morning. But I ended up getting them for around $5 a piece for all 5 of them.

I paid $6, but that was for 7.48mm shims for the 250F. You can buy kits from Hot Cams, one that has a lot of stuff you'll never need for $80, and smaller "refill" kits for $35. But you probably won't really need them that often unless your valves are worn to the point where they need replacing anyway.
