10r valve shims

A big hello to all,

i'm new to the site and need a bit of info. i've had a search but can't find anything that covers it, sooooooo

would any of you know if the valve shims from a 2003 zx6r(b1h) are the same as the ones in the 04 10r.........cos i've just checked the clearances and a few are out of tolerance, now i'll prob be able to swap a few about but i've also got an old 636 motor lying about that if need be i can use the shims out of

Thanks in advance

I want to say yes, but I don't have a reference here to go by. I believe all brands choose and stick with the same shim so they wouldn't have to buy multiple types of shims. You may be able to look online for shims for each motor and year and see if they are the same product number. Just an idea, also......... and hope you stick around for a while with us.

As long as they are 7.48 mm diameter they will fit.

Yep cheers, have seen that guide before. When i had my zx6r, i found it handy when valve clearance time came around, the photos ive taken this time are just to refresh my memory as to where all the wiring and pipes go.......who knows they might even be of help to someone in the future...........i mean...like someone else needing help...not someone from the future coming back in time to find out how to do valve clearances...lol
