This tool replaces the tabels you see in manuals regarding what shimsize to use.
The first choise was made when you choose your model,
Next comes your driving style.
Then the harder part starts, measured play and the size of the shim. (the smarter people amongst us have those figures written down on a piece of paper from last time, and are able to find that piece of paper)
If you are doing this after some headwork, remember that the first rotation of the cranck usually doesn't give exact figures since the cup and shim is not pressed in place yet.
If you see N.A. it means the size shim required is Not Available, either you entered one or more incorrect sizes.
If that's not the case you need to redo some valves.
Shims are available from 2.00 mm until about 3.20 mm in increments of 0.05 mm.
You´re more into inches, miles and other non-metric stuff ?
As all of you can figure, using this tool is at own risk.
I've included the new play, so you can check for yourself.
But checking your valves is a accurate job and there is some "feeling".
Like try to keep the free play between cylinders low,
even if that means you have to take a shim higher or lower than advised.
After 3 nights of thinking & writing together with WayPay it
seems to be is working, but there is an anomaly in the rounding procedure.
For every bike there is a different procedure how to set the best play, herebelow you see how it You have to lign up the T 1-4 marker with the fixed point, to check 2 out of 4 exhaust valves, then you have to aling the T marker for the intake valves.
