    Good Value for Money Valve Shim Kits

    .
    Not sure if anyone is interested or needs shims to top up their Maintenance Parts Stock , but I've just ordered this shim kit from a supplier in the USA.

    The kit comprises of 5 x of each shim size listed in the kit, which just about covers the shim range normally required when doing the valve clearances on our ZRX's.

    The kit I ordered I've arranged for it to be shipped to a friend in the US and shipping within the US is $5 or 3.65 in Old Money.

    Cheers

    I would say that there isn't much point of one. Just order the shims you need from wherever & they will be on your doorstep next day ready to pop in.

    Hey Nige

    I only went with the HCSHIM11 kit (which covers 2.40 to 2.65) because I'm hoping I'll never need a shim below 2.50, and the valve shims currently fitted on my bike are all around the 2.70 and 2.75 shims thickness.

    I suspect or should I say I'm hoping, I won't need any 2.80 or above . Well that's my wishful thinking theory

    What we need is a roving shim kit with dozens of every size that can be posted to members around the country as needed, and then replenished and posted on. So that people have all they need at thier fingertips to be able to do the job in one day.
