Feeler Gauge Conversion

Recommended Posts

I purchased this Feele Gauge set when I had my KTM, I am going to adjust my Valves on the XR, and need some help converting these Feeler Blade Sizes.

5,10,12,15,20,25,30,35

I am looking for

Intake .152mm or .006 inch

Exhaust .203mm or .008 inch

Can anyone help with the actual sizes or what each blade equals?

Convert Metric to english divide the metric MM amount by 25.4

10MM / 25.4= .39370 thousandths.

Intake .152mm or .006 inch use the 15

Exhaust .203mm or .008 inch use the 20

15 = 0.150mm

20 = 0.200mm

25 = 0.250mm

And so on....only the yanks stuck in the dark ages with imperial lol.

Use a converter..

http://www.convertun...from/thou/to/mm (Thou to mm)

http://www.convertun...om/inches/to/mm (Inch to mm)

http://www.convertun...om/mm/to/inches (mm to inch)

I'd be double checking those numbers if I was you.

Actually I'd buy a mm feeler gauge..yours doesn't have enough feelers on it to cover things.

My mm one must have around 20--30 arms attached to it..and Yes it is unbelievable the US still runs on inches.

Think of all the cash making possibilities if they changed..Debt cancelled..

Yeah, well we got to the moon 42 years ago on our system. Still only one flag up there that I know of. Seriously, I don't see where it matters if you use horsepower or furlong grains per fortnight as long as you know what you're doing and can convert specs.
