    Yes, it is. Contact Ray by sending a PM to ghostgs1.

    That screenshot looks familiar, but you need the updated version.
    Send me a PM to confirm your e-mail address, I will send it to you.

        "Waaaaaaaay back"???

        It was only July, 2012.

        There have been a couple minor revisions since then.

            I see some new shims needed in my future too

            What a great resource it is & really nice to be able to custom pick the sizes instead of only the stock offerings!

              I know I've seen it while lurking around, but who has the spreadsheet for the shim sizes?

                    Glad I saw this post. I ran across a half dozen shims in my toolbox yesterday. Since I don't have a GS anymore I'll ping ghostgs1 and see if he wants them for the club.

                          Hi steve,
                          have sent several PM to ghostgs1 to get started in the club with no response? We want to get valves done next week but need a source for shims.
                          Any ideas?

                            If you go to Ray's profile page, you will see that he last signed in to the board a couple of weeks ago. He also has an e-mail address listed, might check that.

                            If worse comes to worse, you can buy the shims you need (except for the "X" shims) at Z1 Enterprises. Shop carefully, make sure they are 29.5mm shims.

                            Send me a copy (via e-mail) of your spreadsheet page so I can verify that you will be getting the correct shims.

                              Does anyone know if the Shim Club is still in operation? I need (2) 2.60 shims for my '82 1100G and am hoping to avoid the online prices.
                              Common sense has become so uncommon that I consider it a super power.


                              Present Stable includes:
                              '74 GT750 Resto-mod I've owned since '79
                              '83 GS1100E (The best E I've ever enjoyed, Joe Nardy's former bike)
                              '82 GS1100G Resto project
