Yes, I use the OEM shock, and yes, the OEM shim is still in place.
I usually raise the rear a bit (typically +5mm @shock) on my bikes since I value the "turn in" ability at the expense of rear traction as it pays off with my riding style. I like to have an idea about the original setup, especially before testing at the track, and even though I have only taken the 10R for two small test runs (VERY nice-and-easy ones), it feels like the OEM shim will be a part of the initial setup (and explore traction at exits...).
Anyway, the 2-3mm gives me a good idea of where I am right now!
