Hey guys, I can't seem to find this answer on google or on this forum. The reason I ask is because I ran out of some of the sizes but I have larger and smaller shim sizes. I'm not sure if it uses the same shim size, I want to order it before I do valve adjustment because I use it as a daily commuter, so I want to fix it while I have all the sizes.

When you do valve clearance, do you have to use smaller shim sizes everytime you do it since valves get tighter?

For example, I use a 2.75mm shim size. The next time I do it, does it get smaller? Like using 2.65mm shim size? etc...

There is no way to know what sizes you will need until you open it up and measure with feeler gauges. There are shim kits you can order online which have an assortment of the different sizes. Last time I checked the kits were around $80.
