Hot cams shims Vs stock-factory

Recommended Posts

So i know the time to shim the valves will come and at 10 bucks a pop for stock ones i was wondering if the hot cams kit is worth it. Are stock better then after market when it comes to shims?? Motor damage?? You know. I would rather split the cost of a kit with my buddy that has the same bike then buy 4 at a time.

g.l.o.

The Hot Cams kit is a necessity if you own one of these machines, consider it money well spent. The kit is only $80.00 and contains two plastic organizers with three each of 147 different shims. At factory cost this would be $1100.00 dollars! Make sure you get the 9.48mm kit.

Yes I bought it too. The only difference I have noticed is the OEM have more sizes. Example Hotcams goes 175, 180, 185. OEM goes 175, 178, 180, 182, 185. But it doesn't seem to be a big deal, it has served me well so far.

Ya those half sizes from the manufacturer are great..........but you can't order them. You can only order the steps like in the hot cam kit. The shim kit from HC is great!
