pro X valve shims

it's been a bit since i last posted i had been waiting for smaller feeler gauges now that those came in i managed to check my valve clearance. now i have done that im looking for a place to buy pro X valve shims in europe which i didn't manage to do but was wondering if any of you knew some place i prefer not to order from USA bc it'll take a long time and i most likely will have to pay import which isn't a joke not the first time it would have happened lol

i'll list the shims that i need in case anyone is wondering

intake cylinder 1->4 this is to get a 2.0 gap
1.80 1.79 17.9 1.80 1.79 1.78 1.81 1.80

exhaust cylinder 1->4 this is to get a 2.2 gap
1.81 1.61 1.76 1.75 1.82 1.83 1.75 1.63

Sven, maybe best thing is visit a local bike shop and see what they have or will they trade you some.

Meanwhile, I'll check my stash, but be aware postal services are backed up like it's Christmas rush...... normally takes a week from here, but right now who knows.

I went to a local bike shop, but only needed 5-6 shims, I bought the ones I needed from him, AND brought back the ones that I replaced and GAVE them to him in gratitude. LOL

The shims are 9.48mm diameter, most Yamahas use them. Honda and Suzuki mostly use 7.48mm.


Fixed typo.
