ok i guess i am having a blond kind of day here i was going to adjust my cam chain and tappets but for the life of me i cant figure out what the settings are i found this on the old site

"inlet valves...............0.08mm

exhaust valves..........0.10mm"

and trying to figure out if my 008 and 010 are the right feeler gauges to use because i dont have the type that say 0.008 or what not unless its the same as what i have

so i need some advise any other day i would know right off jump street and i thought today would be a good day to do it sense my bike is going to be done until i get a tire so what the

because under the 008 it says 203mm and under the 010 it says 254mm so i am lost

Sounds like your gauges just don't have the decimal points on them, the 0.008 is inches which converts to .203 mm.

ok so the 008 is the same as the 0.008 and should work fine then if thats what your saying king because i dont want to screw up my engine at all if ya know what i mean

like i said any other day i would know this right off the top of my head (being a certified small engine tech and all) but today is an off kind of day
ok then what should i do?? do i not have the right ones or what??
ok so i found another set that has the .003 and .004 so i should be good to go thanks guys
