Checkved valves, one was .01mm off; should i change?
Checked valves on Drz400sm;
The two exhaust valves measured: .23mm and .19mm (tolerance is .20-.30mm)
The intake valves were: .13mm and .15mm (tolerance is .10-.20mm).
Should I change out the shim on the .19mm valve? With .05mm shims, I'd assume I could potentially get it to .24?
Is there any harm in leaving it a little tight? Lmk what you think, thanks!

Valves typically tighten up as they wear. If it's already tight it's going to keep getting tighter.
The range is .2 to .3 so .24 will put you right in the middle.
