dont know the crf motor.but if the gap is to small you can reduce the valve stem a bit.

Yes, it would be much easier and safer relative to your top end to replace the valves. It might cost a bit now but it'll pay off in the long run.

What year is your bike, is it an X ?

How many miles or how much time is on it ? It must be a lot if you've just been shimming away, right ? We like to know these things to better share with you our experiences,and to hear yours.

Tell us more grasshopper :applause:

What the guys are telling you is right, don't be grinding on your valves for God's sake,and your engines sake ,too.

What kind of symptoms were you getting when you first started all this shimming ? Doug

Like already mentioned...

With your litttle bit of information given;

REPLACE the valves, and have the valve seats done.

Additional longevity is replacing with SS valves from a TRX motor.

It's the only way to do it RIGHT.
