Was checking shims for the first time after finally getting new cam chain on and lining up TDC. If you are sitting on the quad, my right intake valve measures at .017 which is pretty far out of spec. Left measured at around .010 which isnt to far off. Exhaust shims are off but not by much. Would a valve shim kit have the size to get the valves adjusted correctly or could there lie a bigger problem? New to this so sorry for the simple questions.

Yes the kit will have them. Pretty normal for them to tighten up over time
