    Where can I buy single valve shims in Hamilton?

    I am in the process of doing valve clearances and rocker cover gaskets on the NC30, and I need 11 new shims.
    Managed to swap a few around to get them in spec, but I am after:

    3 x 220
    7 x 225
    1 x 230

    The local Honda shop sells packs containing 5 of a particular size listed at $15 for the pack, which isn't too bad, but it means I'd have to buy 4 packs to cover the sizes I need, and I'd have 9 shims left over afterward.

    Just wondering if anybody knows of a shop around Hamilton that will trade shims, or sell single shims? I don't really wanna buy a pack of 5 when I only need one of a particular size.

    go to your nearest bike shop.

    My local does shim swaps for $1 each.

    I swap around the ones I can, then take the useless ones to the local bike shop and swap them for the right ones for a buck each

    Mm will give it a go tomorrow. I didn't even think about it being a public holiday when I got stuck into the job today!
