Does anyone know what the diameter of the valve shims is on an R6S? I am shimming the valves on my dirt bike right now and the shim diameter is 7.5mm. I'm hoping someone can confirm this is the same size on the R6 so I can feel better about dropping the money on the Hot Cams shim kit. With 45k on the R6 I'm guessing it's going to need shimmed too.

Thanks.

Confirmed. 7.48mm kit. HCSHIM01 hot cams part number. Chances are you'll have to buy some of the extra shims as well, since all 16 valves seem to want the same reshim size.
