Shim size

I will be checking my valve clearance for the first time on my 08 Wee and as alot of them they don't need any adjustment. I want to have the correct size on hand just in case. I am going to order the Hot Cams refill kit and I needed to know the correct diameter and thickness range. Thanks for your imput.

I ordered the Hot Cams refill kit(7.48mm) sizes 1.50mm to 1.75mm for my valve check this past weekend. All checked within spec. All in all not too hard of a job to check them.
