06 kx250 fork shims

Anyone know the stock fork shim measurements on the 06 kx250? The previous owner had it set up for woods and I am a quick mx rider so this set up doesn't work. If I could find out how many of each shim and what the thicknesses are in the stock stack then I would have a good starting point. I tried to play with the oil height but it is either too soft or too stiff when I do that. Clicker adjustments don't seem to help at all. Stiffer spring would just make it harsh with this soft dampening that I have. Someone please tell me the stock fork shim stack measurements!

2008 specs, I guess 2006 is the same or almost the same...

Thanks for posting the specs. Are those measurements in millimeters? I used my micrometer to measure the width and diameter of them so our notes dont match up. What should I use to measure the diameter of them?

every shim specs (even in the US) is noted in mm


google will show you thousands of sites with conversion mm to inches  :-)
