I’m in the middle of doing my valve adjustment, I was just wondering has anybody had to use smaller opening and closing shims on the exhaust valve , as opposed to larger ones. It was very tight in there, Almost no clearance at all .06mm in total come binding opening and closing
The manual shows between
.10mm >.15mm clearance for the opening and
.05mm on the closing which would give you a total gap of anything between
.15mm> .20mm
Any thoughts?

I'm not sure what or why you are combining opening and closing measurements. They are two independent measurements and have no connection with each other.

Yes I understand that!
I was just pointing out how tight it was in there.
The valve was at the point of being bound up.

You seem slightly agitated at me but at the end of your post you did say "any thoughts" What I didn't get and still don't is why you add up the two clearances.
Anyway I'm sure you'll figure it out without the likes of me butting in.
