Normally the last 10 years or so I make my own shims for the rear shock. This go round since Ill be doing some small shimming and testing I do not want to have to tear so much of the bike down to fit my washer style shims.

For the life of me I can not find some standard slid in shims anywhere.

Can you guys post some sites that carry shims for gen 4 and gen 5? thanks in advance.

I did a search and followed old links in old threads (im in two of them) but the links are not valid anymore.

While i have you....

For those who are shimming Gen 5 rears.
how much are you shiming?

I have a TTX Ohlins rear and have it screwed out to the max...and it feels as tho I need about 2 to 5 mm more shims.
(comparing to my Gen 4s)

Found out that I can use the shims from old american cars front end.

1973 Chevy Impala and they are dirt cheap and almost same shape with different thicknesses.

FYI, Kawasaki makes a set of shims for about $40...
