Need a Valve Shim
« on: January 04, 2011, 07:43:54 pm »
I decided to check valve clearances since my R6 is apart.  15 of the valve clearances were good...and one is just out of the tight end of the spec. :11

So I had to remove the exhaust cam for ONE shim!  Anyway, does anyone have a 180 shim I can buy or exchange?  It is the 7mm dia type.  I have a few different sizes if you want to exchange.  I have several 170's and 172's and a 184.  I also have two larger diameter ones that came out of a TL1000 but I can't read the sizes.  One is a 2_5 and the other is a 2_8, but I can't read the middle numbers.
