where to buy shims (valve clearance)

  1. a quick query...

    what's the best place to buy valve shims?
    had any problems with quality etc?
    price difference?

    (I cant just switch them around because the 2 that are out of spec are using the
    same size shim)


  2. any bike shop. They're a couple of bucks each and pretty much all the same grade steel.
  3. cool, well I ended up grabbing one from a kwaka dealer .. was $5
