According to the Yamaha manual (which you desperately need) the smallest shim size available from Yamaha is 120.

But that's not what you need to do!!! You need to set the valve clearances to .10mm-.15mm on the Intakes and .20mm-.25mm on the Exhaust. You do this by reading the manual and looking in the chart, which will tell you what shim size you need. Do you know what your clearances are currently at? Maniac
