I don't know how it works where you live or how close you are to a Kawasaki dealer but I wouldn't buy a shim kit. What I do is start in the morning and take the bike apart and take the measurement to find out what shims I need. Then I take my shims into the Kawi dealer and trade them for the size of shims I need. My dealer charges $4.00 a shim if I bring in the old ones. Most times when you do the adjustment you will find that a few of the shims will move to another valve and you only have to replace 1 or 2.
