Valve shims? Shock shims? What kind of shims are you looking for? A little bit more information would help here.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

hot cams offers direct replacement shims at a fraction of the cost of oem. correct shim size is 7.48. u can choose selection on ebay. no problems, sized correctly. kit price less than a buck apiece. can order exact size needed for hot cams direct. my closest dealer priced them at $13 a piece oem.

Sorry valve shims. Will order today. The dealers here slug 8bucks change over but have now stopped this and charge 25 bucks a shim. That's over 20 USD. Then they complain that everyone buys from the US. Go figure. Thanks gum

Have not done the 10 yet, but I have used the Pro X shims from Rocky Mountain ATV on my other bikes.

Here's a link to the 7.48mm if that's the right size.

$1.99 each and available in "half sizes" too.

The prob with a kit is you end up with a bunch of sizes
you will never use.

Didn't realize Hotcam sells single shims, last time (long time ago) they
only offered a "refill" for the kit. Like 10? in a bag.
