The entire kit cost quite a bit...

You need to make your measurments, pull the cams, pull the buckets, check the shims, do your simple math and order the shims you need...

Its not that expensive. I got a full kit for $80 from procycle, here is the link http://www.shopprocycle.us/productli...catalogId=1671
They are really a good bunch, when I called them up they were able to hook me up with the correct shims because my bike wasnt on the list. I got the HotCams ones.

When you do your valve adjustment just be careful, take your time, and double check everything.
