Valve Adjustment Question
Posted September 14, 2000 - 03:29 PM
According to the manual, it appears that replacement shims come only in .05 mm increments. If so, you cannot adjust the valves to a precise measurement you choose; e.g., If I measure the intake at .14 mm, the best I could do is to shim it at .19 mm, I can't adjust it to .17 mm.
I'm I correct?
The reason I ask is that there would be no point in adjusting the valve unless it was out at least .02 mm.
What do you think?

You got it correct the only ones you can buy come in 0.05mm increments. On new bikes delivered from the factory you may find some in between but you cannot buy them.

your talking 002" between each shim, that's fine.
