Intakes: .10-15mm

Exhausts: .20-.25mm

Download your own manual:


It's probably not the valves.. However, if you need to shim any of them more than .10mm, it's time for a valve job. If you doubt this, recheck the valves again after one or two more rides, and you will almost certainly find that that particular valve has already moved out of spec.
