Hi
I just ground down the existing ones on sandpaper.
If you have a proper caliper and that shim calculator program, you can get it closer then anything available, plus its free and you can do it all at once vs. leaving the bike open, order ,pick up etc.
Apperently not much adjustment needed on the first scheduled check at 7-8k but i had some tight valves later.
