OK if you could please BTW as you can see I had a mis-type I meant YZ400F not 440 duuuuh :)

Exhaust2= .010" - .012"

Intake3 = .006" - .008"

You can have a machine shop grind the shim down a couple of thou's to spec. if you need to button it back up real quick. Otherwise Yamaha may take a few days depending in their stock.

For instance : .005" reading at intake would mean grinding off .002 to get back within range.

BTW mine is '99 but they must be same I guess.

Take care and please work patiently.
