Made everything easy!

They organize them all for you, telling you the size which is amazing. I went ahead a measured them all with my micrometer and they were all correct. This kit made adjusting my valves super easy!!

Exactly what you need.

Stop trying to adjust that hanging idle or bog and get a shim kit so you know your valves are right before you tweak the carb.
Number one issue I see with most dirtbikes are tight valves and messed up carb adjustments.

Great kit, very complete

Did my first valve adjustment and having a complete kit like this is a must. Great product and should be able to shim lots of bikes down the road.

Cheaper then a shop

A wide variety of shims makes the job a breeze. no more taking it to a shop you can buy two shim kits for the cost of one valve adjustment.

The kit has you covered pretty much

Every thing I needed was there you will wind up with a lot of extras. It's berly enough of each size to do a 4 cyl 16 valve engine. You could possibly run out of a size but I just dropped to the next smallest. Had rather valve be a tad loose than tight.

Shims are shims - it's the extras that count!

Valve shims are old hat. Where Hot Cams sets theirs apart is in the presentation and extra goodies you get for the money. The shims come in a divided, labeled, seal-padded plastic tray, with clearly-marked pockets. Not only are they well-organized, but the box contains a jeweler's loupe as well, to make it easier to read the markings on the shims! Very handy.

Great Customer service

My review is not about the products I purchased but about the great customer service I received from Motosport.

My purchase was initially difficult as I live in the Philippines and used my credit card from Spain to purchase items to be delivered in the US. No wonder that credit card security went into overdrive.

Motosport handled this in a sensitive way and worked with me for almost a week and finally came up with an imaginative and successful solution to the problem.

The items were delivered just a couple of days later. Massive thanks to the AWESOME customer service people at Motosport! You didn't give up and I now have my badly needed spare parts.

Must Have

If you have a 4 stroke, you must have a shim kit. Nice variety to help you get the valves back into spec

Must have

If you are changing cams order this kit also. Your stock cam shims will NOT be right.

its a must have when it comes to keeping your 4 stroke running right. older hot cams valve kits were labeled way better..takes you a few minutes to find the shim you need. other then that its a great kit.

A: Unfortunately Hotcams does not currently offer their shim kit for the 2007 Kawasaki ZX-10R. Shimming valves on sport bikes can be fairly intensive so I would recommend doing as much research as possible before diving into this project. Pro X does offer a shim kit for your bike which you can find here:http://www.motosport.com/motorcycle/Pro-X-Valve-Shim-Kit

A: There are enough shims in the kit, provided you accurately measure each shim with a micrometer. Do the math for the high and low side of the spec window and find a shim that fits the window. Instillation is as simple as removing a bucket, removing the old one (with a magnet), and dropping the new one in place. That is once you get the valve cover and cams out of the way.

I have this bike which I think should take the same kit as the CB600F as they are similar engines. Can you confirm whether the same 9.48mm kit will fit? THanks

Q: On the shim caps, does it matter which cap goes where? are they all the same size?
2 years 6 months ago
i have an 03 z400 and am in the process of putting the top end back together, i think i might have gotten the shim caps mixed up or buckets ive heard them called, does it matter wich cap came off where if so how do i go about figuring out wich order is correct?

A: It always very important to put the caps or buckets back where they came from or any other part for that matter. Things need togo back for ware purposes. Everything wares differently so its always good to get them back where they belong.Put them back to the best of your knowledge and do the valve clearance. Just for next time put them back where you got them.

A: It doesn’t matter, there is slight differences with each cap but their not noticeable. the most significant change is the valve shim itself. also when you’ve adjusted the clearance, you need to always double check the valve clearance again.

A: It would likely be best to install the caps in the same location they came from but unless there was noticable wear on one of the caps the difference between the caps shouldn't be that significant. As long as your valve clearance is correctly adjusted to spec you should be fine.
