Where to buy valve shims?
I just tore my Wee apart to check the clearances. One exhaust valve is too tight. I went up to my friendly local dealer to buy shims, and here is the responses I got:
Valve Shims? Aw F*CK!
What's it for?
That's a Yamaha, right?
Are you sure it's a Suzuki? I thought it was a Yamaha.
(Now I know I'm in the wrong place, talking to the wrong dude.)
Don't have em. I'll check the our service shop next door.
Nobody there had a clue, either, but they said they could order some. They did try to call a couple people that might know something about valve shims, but at 4:30 on Saturday, no luck.
I left, half amused & half p/o'ed. I'm assuming these people are idiots & I should simply try another local dealer. ?Right?
Searching here, it sounds like they are a common size, even used in Kawa's & Hondas.
The dealer I was at is Macomb Power Sports in Clinton Twp Michigan. They sell Suzuki, Honda, Kawa, and more...... Just expanded their parts dept. :roll:
