Hey guys, I have been reading a lot on this site. It is GREAT!! I also know that I saw a thread about a shim or pad set (aftermarket) for valve adjustments that was odd sizes and had more choices than the standard .05mm sizes. I have just gone back through and have looked everywhere for it and cant, for the life of me, find it again. Can anyone tell me where I might find a set of shims in odd sizes? Thanks, Jason

Hot cams has a big set also Honda 450's use the same diameter shims but Honda offers the shims in .025mm sizes.

Hey thanks for responding. Am I to understand that the Honda shims are the same and if I buy the Honda factory shims they come in.025 mm increments? Thanks Jason
