    Hello everyone! I am new to the site and new with my 82 GS 1100. My intake shims range from 2.65 to 2.74, I have .025" clearance for them, way off. I have 2.46 to 2.62 shim for the exhaust valves. Which is not allowing my smallest gauge (.006") to not slide beneath. Does anyone want to trade shims?

    Hey guys. I have 78 GS750. My shims are super tight after my engine rebuild. 2 out of eight are good, however I will be needing a couple 2.45s or smaller. Do you know if they come smaller than this? My smallest feeler gauge has 0 clearance even at 2.5. Any help is appreciated. i have plenty of 2.5-2.75 sizes.
    Thanks

    Have a look at the first couple entries of this thread for some of the sizes available.
    Many smaller than 2.45.
