Shims are available in .002 increments.

Looking at my shim collection for the Hyosung Engines, seems that the shims are 0.05mm step difference,

0.05 millimeters = 0.00196850394 inches

Just keep in mind that the Part number is the thickness in mm, not 1000/inches  ::)

You got that correct, just try to get a good set of feeler gauges to measure them is the trick 8)

I have some long bent feeler gauges and a Digital mike to read the shims with.

Got a bent set of feeler gauges
at a surprising price
Read reasonable price Wink

You need at least 3 leaves in the range you you are going to check, so get the one with the most

leaves in the range you need.

Specified clearance is 0.10 - 0.20mm, here in the USA it is hard to get Metric feeler gauges, so you need ones that are marked in both, this gives you strange Metric numbers as the gauges are made in Thousands of an inch thickness.

When checking for ware the clearance gets smaller, when rebuilding can be anything.

for those in the metric world this is nonsense Cheesy

Specified clearance is 0.10 - 0.20mm,

Look in the back of the Shop Manual, has the table. ???

I'm really glad I read through this thread.  I think I feel confident enough to check the clearance myself and would probably prefer to have a professional handle the adjustment if it was needed.  Question now would be would Hyosung honor the warranty if I checked the clearances?  I would hope that if I kept a log of oil changes and clearance checks (along with reciepts for parts), that I might have to demonstrate my ability to check clearances, but...

I've seen a couple of ads for schools that teach you how to be a motorcycle mechanic.  That actually sounds like a fun second career!

No, you can get another mechainic to do it, but unless you're a qualified mechanic they can screw you in the arse

I would say it matters on what the warranty is for.  If it is found that the valves were not adjusted right, or valve related problem, then you may  have an issue with warranty. If it was a non related problem you would be fine.

when the cylinder head cover is put back on, should the gasket be replaced?

regardless of whether the gasket is replaced, should threebond be used on the gasket?

thanks!
