This thread will be dedicated to those brave individuals wanting to swap shims for the valve adjust procedures...

Brave...I like that LOL.

I have a kit of 1.5mm-3.50mm that I'd be willing to share from.  It'll be like swapping baseball cards, :-)

Perhaps a micrometer check before sending would be cool (if the size is rubbed off from wear).

Jim,
  Thanks for doing this.  I hope not to need ANY shims when I do my bike but you never know.  Iḿ sure this will be faster than ordering individual shims from a dealer.

I will take an inventory of my shim stock today and post here.
