looks like the chopper is going to be out of action for a couple of days

while the top is off we thought it might be a good idea to check the shims

both exhaust shims checked out ok

both the inlets were tight (zero clearance)

next problem get the shims out

trying to figure out how the batman sign worked

ok got it. easy when you know how. lol

the shims i had lying around were all to big

a phone call to a local dealer. they said they had shims, the next size down and a selection

my brother went and got shims but they did not have the size the said they had. this turned out not to be a problem because the shims they supplied were the wrong size (not 32mm)

my brother went back to the shop and got the only 3 32mm shims they had

we put a smaller shim in and worked out we needed 2x 265 shims but only had one that size

back on the phone tried another bike shop who said they keep them in the workshop but would not sell any

next on the phone was the nearest kawasaki dealer who told us they don’t keep them in stock but could order them

back on the phone to the first shop again. ordered shims which should be in on tuesday

hardly worth putting the top back on, re-tensioning the cam chain,new gasket, etc. just for two days
