03 600rr valve adjustment
First time doing a valve adjustment on my 03 600rr track bike. Got to say....this is quite the process (my first time !). I am presently done pulling all the buckets and the old shims. I measured all the old shims using my mastercraft digital caliper and i noticed that the reading is off by a bit for most of them. Example: shim reads 190 but im getting 188.
In all cases my reading is lower than what was written on the shim. Is this normal as they are old shims and they get worn out? Or should I be using the stated measurement regardless.
Would like any help as this is my last step before calculating what new shims I require.
