Valve Shims


Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone know where I can get a shim calculation chart for XSR900?  Intake valve clearances same as FJ-09 (MT 09; FZ 09) but exhaust differs with minimum value being 0.24mm (FJ 09 is 0.26mm) to 0.30mm (Haynes Manual).

Your best bet is the service manual.
That said, I usually do them in my head. Will try to find the Honda formula that works well regardless of the specifications.
Or you can post here what shim sizes you have installed, and what the clearance measured. I can recommend a starting point for to bring them into spec.
