So I 'm in the middle of my valve adjustment - I had a guy help me on the front cyl but he had to leave. I'm doing good but it's late and my minds getting fuzzy , and I want to get everything back (valve covers back on at least before knocking off for the night ). DL650K5 30,000 miles

Intakes are in spec

Exhaust tolerance 0.20-0.30 MM
Exhaust "A" (tight)
Measured 0.18 mm clearance
stock shim 168mm

Exhaust B
Measured 0.20mm (min spec)want to adjust to middle?
stock shim 168mm

I assume I want to go to middle of spec or recommendations.

Do i want to go larger or smaller? I have shims 1.50- 1.75 in .05 increments

Thanks!!

You go smaller to increase the clearance. Use 160s for a 0.26 clearance on A and an 0.28 on B. Clearances decrease with wear so you want between the middle and the wide end of the range.
