Are you sure you didn't transpose the measurements? If your intakes measured 0.004" and exhausts measured 0.010", you're on the tight side, but within spec; otherwise, you really need to reshim.

inlets are the ones closest to your carby, so your inlets would be 0.004" and exhaust 0.010" They are still in spec so you don't need to shim yet. Check them every ride and shim when they go out of spec.
