Hi, winter service on the Jota and I need a 2.45mm valve shim. Before I order from Paradies and pay a fortune in postage and taxes anyone out in the uk there have one in the spares box?
thanks,
merrick

Hi Merrick, food for thought... if you have one that is slightly fatter (maybe the one you removed) you can carefully reduce the thickness by grinding or 20 minutes hurting your finger with wet-n-dry.

I use a centre punch in the dimple on the underside of the shim to move the shim in a figure of 8 motion on my diamond stone.
I figure having downwood pressure on the centre of the shim there is a better chance of keeping it flat.
