Aftermarket shims. HotCams to be exact. Ordered 2 packs of 195 shims for a total of 10 shims off of eBay. Total cost for shims with shipping was like $16.

FWIW, here are a few pics post disassembly. When doing a project like this, organization is key.

Did the stock shims loose any thickness?, sorry for asking too many questions, I need to do valve adjustment & feel intimidated, my bike has ~62K & valves were never checked

They don't appear to have lost any thickness. That is why I will use some of the old shims to get some of the other valve to within spec. All shims spec'd out close to what the marking was with my HF digital micrometer. I made sure to zero out the micrometer for each shim. All shims were within .005 mm of the indicated thickness.

In case you didn't already know, new shims only come in certain sizes and only in .05 mm increments. If you have the service manual, it will tell you to round the shim size to the nearest .05 mm and go up or down from there depending on your clearance measurement.

Bring your bike to VA, I'll go through it with ya!

My shims had no wear when I did the check on my bike. One thing to really pay attention to is the timing chain. Don't let that sucker jump while you have the cam out. Use a sharpie to mark the position in multiple spots before you remove it and use zipties to secure the chain to the other cam gear.

Oh and don't get too excited and remove the cam chain tensioner before you measure clearances. There's a chance you won't have to do that at all

1. Reinstall heated glove controller. Check.
2. Replace Vario summer screen with winter 21" Rifle "barn door". Check.
3. Attach side racks and 21l cases for all the extra "stuff". Check.
4. Ride to work in sub-freezing temps. Check.
5. Investigate methods to add Ham radio. In-process.

The valve adjustment sheet, final version. Had to fiddle with the shims as I did not have enough 2.00 shims to accomplish what I originally wanted, but this worked out better. All intake valves will be within .02 mm of each other and all exhaust within .01 mm of each other. And all valves are adjusted off the tight end of the specs.

A few pics:

1. Shim in place next to valve without a shim yet. All shims should be placed so the writing is face up.

2. Bucket in place.

3. Intake and exhaust shims and buckets in place. Cam installation will be next.

Found this in one of the valleys in the head. It was non-magnetic. Turns out it's a plastic piece, maybe a fairing tab. It probably snapped off from somewhere and fell into the recess for the coolant intake pipes and fell in when I removed the valve cover.

I used my endoscope/borescope to look around for other debris. I did find a few more shady looking pieces in there. I used oil soaked cotton swabs to fish them out.

In case you're curious about the endoscope/borescope, check it out here.

I always set the inlet to the minimum for meself. The longer it is open, the more petrol can be used in the cylinder. For the exhaust vice versa to accelerate the speed of the gas.

Well, if I were racing, I would, but I'm not. But thanks.
