replace with the proper calculated shim and reassy? actually that seems very simple compared to some of the OHV jap stuff.
Yes, if you're going to replace shims on both the intake & exhaust side.

After you remove the two top bolts and the cap on the end, you can thread one of the 6mm valve cover bolts into the end of the rocker shaft a couple of threads so you can pull the shaft out. If you use a magnet stick it makes it real easy to r&r the shims. Don't forget to tighten the top bolts to the proper torque and remeasure the gap, it's that simple.
