No shop in town will exchange shims or give you a discount when you buy the shims from them. Time to get back to doing all my own work on my bikes.

Hi Would you happen to know what shim kit would work for my 2005 triumph speedmaster? When I do a search I don't see anything specifically for this motor. I can buy them separately if you think this is the better option or the only option in this case.
Thank you!

Great value
This kit was purchased to adjust the valve's on a 1999 Kawasaki ZRX1100. It worked perfectly. It even came with a magnifier lens for these old eyes to read the shim numbers. I recommend this kit.

Hot Cams Shims worked for me
I ordered the Hot Cams Shims from Bike Bandit and received them within 3 business days. I had them in time to adjust my valves over the weekend. Thanks for the service.

Good value, but Sizes inconsistent.
This kit was definitely a better value than buying shims at the dealer. A nice foam sheet fits under the lid and keeps all the shims from mixing up (like some reviewers had). However when I measured them using a micrometer, the thickness of some of the shims was inconsistent. I only tried to use the 1.65, 1.70, and 1.75 shims. Two of the 1.65s measured 1.67mm and the 1.75s were more like 1.73. They were stamped with the number they were supposed to have so they weren't just put in the wrong spot. Not a huge deal, I was still able to get the valves on my first gen sv650 in spec though I'll be taking it apart to check it sooner than I'd like. Overall good value for a diyer who has the perspicacity to adjust their own tappets.

Got the right shim the first time!
This shim kit comes with a large array of shims. The size is etched on the shim for easy reading and it shouldn't wear off easy. The kit included a magnifying glass also. For those of us that are vision impaired.
It would be nice if the kits had different diameter shims to fit different manufactures engines. As it is we have to by a different kit for each brand of engine. Not Hot Cams fault If they made a kit to cover every engine brand, it would be expensive.

Great product
I needed some shims for a 95 Ninja. 6 shims from the factory were just as expensive as the hot cams kit. It comes with all the shims you could ever need, in a nicely organized container that locks so there is no need to worry about it coming open and making a mess. There are 3 shims for each size. Fit perfectly in the motor and have not bad a problem with them yet. It was nice to have the kit because some of my math was off. Instead of needing to order and wait for another shim I just picked it out of the kit, and in the long run I saved a ton of money!!!!

The product is amazing and easy to read all the number. It helped me a lot when doing my valves.

We'll worth the money
All shims were easy to read. Thought about buying just a few shims to fix my intake valve. I bought the kit instead. I'm glad I did because the valve ended up 22 thousandths off. If I had just bought a few shims it might have taken a few trips to the shop to finish the adjustment. I had everything I needed in one kit.
