I’ve only done 3 valve jobs and the last two times I made my calculations, went down to my local motosports mechanic, and bought the 4-5 individual shims to adjust the valves. It’s a hassle and I was never happy with my first attempt to get within spec. The set was well labeled and had all the sizes I could possibly need.
Exactly what's expected
Everything went great from ordering the shims shipping them and me putting them in
Comes with every whim size you need and includes a little magnifier to read the shim sizes
Perfect for doing a valve adjustment. And if you run out you can just order a refill on the pills you're out of.
Seems expensive. Also whack that 250 and 450 take two different sizes so now its really expensive cause i had to buy two. When i got the box the shims had jumped around and were all mixed up. Also my caliper read different numbers than on shims but was still able to make it work. Started first kick. If you know exactly which shim you need you can order just that one for much cheaper.
They work great and are pretty true to size, organized good but some of them would stick together and it was very difficult to get them apart.
Bought these for my 2008 ktm 450’xcf

Question:Q: How long does it take to take every thing off and shim the valvesQuestion asked 1 year 1 month ago
Question answered by Reed340User's contributor status:Question answered 1 year 1 month agoAnswer: A: It really depends on the bike. It's fairly involved. On my KX450, it requires pulling the radiator shrouds and tank before you can even get the the motor. I've done it several times and I can get it done in around an hour or less.
Question answered by PaulUser's contributor status: Top 10Question answered 1 year 1 month agoAnswer: A: We strongly suggest that your valve-adjustment be performed by a qualified motorcycle mechanic.
