Hey guys so of course I have one intake valve on front bank that needs a 2.70mm shim and the hot cam kit I have only goes up to 2.60mm. Iím not buying the aprilia shim kit from AF1 just to have one 2.70mm, so would anyone hook me up? Iíd be willing to pay someone to over night it to me as well. Thank you!!

I’m tempted to just put bike back together as the one intake valve is just a little bit out of spec at .165mm when clearance for intakes is .10mm-.15mm but I’d just feel better knowing I’m perfect.

Does anyone know for sure if being .015mm loose is negligible or really should be tightened up!?

Personally I would fix it and use the correct shim. They have the range for a reason from Aprilia. Yes Iím sure there is some fudge factor and that range is to guarantee the specs till next valve check. But for the piece of mind and you already have it all apart why not do the right one. Try emailing AF1. They may have some spare shims you can trade or buy one possibly. Or check with a KTM dealer as well.

For some reason I’m almost sure I’ve read on AF1 that individual shims are not available. But I will certainly try em and KTM and see if they can help. thank you

.15mm or .006" is fine for the IN valves

individual shims are indeed available and have a Aprilia p/n for each and every size in .025mm increments

.015 mm over is only half of one thousands of an inch over! I think I'd leave it, unless there are more that need changing.
Here are the shim part numbers from my list.
Should be correct unless superseded.

Did you get the special tools? You must have if you're going after the shims. Let me know how it works out!

Hey man so I just used two piston stops I made out of threaded rod to lock the crank along with extra security from motion pro gear jammer. And as far as pins go I had the stuff I needed at my shop. All is going well just waiting on a 2.7mm shim for front bank then I’ll be done. Rear banks back together.

I have got to give a shout out to member (MICHAELRC51) the man just overnighted me the 2.7mm shim I needed and wouldn’t take a dime from me!! There’s some seriously great people here!!

same goes for member (NUMBER41) he shipped me some of his personal bike parts awhile back as I needed to get a reconstructed title done on my one Rsv4 here in Pa so I needed headlights, mirrors etc... and he sent it all to me trusting I’d send it back which of course I did. and didn’t want any money for postage or his time!

thank you guys!!!!
