1988 Honda XR250R valvetrain

I need to order a new stock Honda valve spring set. I also need retainers and base washers.

1). What "spring height" should I set the valves at?

2). What thickness shims should I order?

This valvetrain stuff is new to me, so pardon me if I am asking a dumb question.


Anybody chime in, please!! At a minimum, should I be ordering shims?

I have a brand new cylinder head and kibblehwhite valves, stock camshaft, and rockers. The rest I need to buy.



No shims req,,all u need to do is adjust the valves

In 0.10 plus/minus 0.02

Ex 0.12 plus/minus 0.02
