Input the measured valve clearance, the current shim size, and the desired clearance for each valve.
The program will calculate the shims needed to get as close as possible to the desired clearance.1

Notes:
1. Kawasaki 29mm valve shims are only available in increments of five hundredths of a millimeter.
2. If you replace your "doohickey" before it breaks, the old one makes a perfect timing plug wrench.
3. Cam cap torque spec.   12N-m | 1.2kg-m | 104in-lbs
4. Valve cover torque spec.   7.8N-m | 0.80kg-m | 69in-lbs
