Valve Shim OD

Hey guys,

Getting ready to turn 56,000 miles and am gonna finally go ahead and perform the bike's first valve adjustment. Have a couple seconds of clatter on startup, too, which according to various R6 vids on YouTube, likely points to a stretched timing chain and possibly worn out chain tensioner.

With that being said, I plan to change timing chain, cam sprockets, chain tensioner, and adjust the valves.
QUESTION: Any idea what the OD of the valve shims are? I'm guessing it's 7.48 like most other Japanese inline fours?

Thanks!

Would you mind posting your check results? My wife's 6r has 65,000+ miles with no check, just kind of curious.

Thanks, John

Yes Sir, I most certainly will. It'll be a little while for me to piece together all the stuff... looking at like $280 to get the shims, sprockets, chain, gaskets, etc.
But, once I knock it out I'll post up the results.
