Need 9.5x1.7 Valve Shims
« on: October 08, 2015, 08:08:00 AM »
Anyone know a place around here that would have valve shims? I tried Big #1 and they looked at me like I was crazy to think they would have them in stock. I ordered from Partzilla Monday but I just got my second "your order is delayed" email and really don't wait until the end of October for them to finally get in. I plan to call dirt bike supply this morning when they open, but if anyone knows a good shop in the Birmingham area that might have shims, I'd really appreciate it.

Dirt Bike Supply is merging with MaxMotorsports in Pelham. I don't know when, so if they don't answer the phone, try Max.

Hit Bill Patridge not Partridge, lol up on Face Book. He has merged with Max now and updates his page daily.

You may check eBay or Amazon for shim kits. I've seen some pretty decent prices for pennies on the dollar [emoji106]

Tech 46 on sixth avenue had them and gave me a great price to boot. I had never been in there before but it's a really cool shop that does a wide range of services and fabrication. If you're ever downtown, stop by and check them out.
