Hello to all I did a valve adjustment on my K1200lt and I am looking for some buckets or shims I need three 2.75 and one 2.65 and i have some 2.90 to trade if anybody is intrested . I have changed these out on my exhaust the last 13000 miles and had to drop them down by .005mm or a thousand each time twice now , is this normal and I know they wear to the tight end . Thanks Jon

FYI
I did mine earlier this summer. I didn't receive any swap offers and had to buy my own.

I think you mean by 0.05 mm as that is the steps in bucket size. The valve seats will wear faster if you stay in the higher RPM ranges (7-8,000) a lot. But two changes in 13 K miles is unusual if it was the same valves.
