Here is the same information that is in the GYSM for shim selection.

The measurements for these charts is millimeters, not inches.

EDIT: 11/13/16 - This chart now includes the additional shim sizes offered by RPM.

EDIT: 4/18/17 - Metric measured column added, if you like that metric stuff...

I was taught that there are two kinds of countries. Those countries that have successfully launched and landed a man on the moon, and safely returned those that landed on the moon to earth.

The other kind of countries all use the metric system.

So, that can be taken 2 ways Ted - either the U.K. Has landed a man on the moon and successfully brought him safely back as well, or if you believe the conspiracy theorists, everybody in the world uses metric.  sarcastic sarcastic

German war-criminal

 Hi Tom ...entirely unrelated to the topic, I've just noticed your profile pic.  good2 I've seen that view a few times before - about 15 years ago. Coming home from Tellico ,on the interstate. All my camping gear strapped on. Filled up with gas, hit the road went as fast as she'd go for about 40 minutes, ran out of gas! Lesson learned - when you're running WFO you only get about 100 miles per tank  drinks

....nowadays I get all vertigo'd out when i try to go over 90  sarcastic

Not related to the Shim Chart..
That goes for all, just did a fast stretch on the German Autobahn with my Z900 (2019) with 17 Liter it just managed 120 Miles, touring in France I got 200 miles range....
Cheers, Tom.

I belong to the local English bicycle club in Minneapolis. I am one of the few guys in the US with a complete set of Whitworth tools, for use on my Raleigh bikes, the ones built prior to 1974 or so, anyway.

The later Englush bikes were metric. The French bikes were always metric.
