Valve Shim Size?

Recommended Posts

What size valve shims does my 12 500xc-w have? I want to order a shim kit, I don't have a manual yet or I would just reference that

 

Have you checked your valves for clearance? If not, maybe check them and them you can determine what shims you need.

No manual yet, so no idea what the clearances should be, and if they where wrong I don't have the shims to adjust it. I order the manual tomorrow so I was hopping to also order a shim kit at the same time

Rocky Mountain sells a shim kit for your bike. 60-70$ for the kit if memory serves me right. I've got 70 hours on my 09 450 and the valves have yet to move. I've been checking them every 20 hours.
