Just Checked Valve Clearance - #'s good enough?

Recommended Posts

It's a 2001 DRZ400S w/ 867mi. I bought it a few months back with 280mi. All the mileage I've put on it since are street. It's completely stock.

I just did a valve clearance check and feel real good about the intake clearance of .152mm.

However the exhaust came out to .203mm. The next size gauge up I have is .229mm and that didn't fit.

What's the advice? Shim it or leave it? It's got such low mileage on it that I am concerned why it's so close to being out of spec at this point.

Ok, I'll leave it. I'll be doing some mods, like a cam, very soon anyway. I can fuss with it at that time.
