Hi guys, I have not yet needed to change any shims on my 1996 VFR 750. I have checked them a couple of times and changes are so small that it could be my skills being inadequate with the micrometer and feeler gauge. Recently I read it is better they are off target value to the "smaller side" - I don't understand this argument... maybe somebody can explain this? But it got me thinking, is it better to "hunt" being as close as possible to the target value. With my latest measures I realised that I can get them all better than 0.01 mm with just 3 new shims and moving some others around. What do you do - leave the shims as long as clearance is within spec or do you go for the closest to taget value every time?
