Re. the shims: There's info from Bushmechanic on the forum about the mechanical properties the shims need to have (he's a mechanical engineer iirc - the info is solid), as in thickness and material (as well as info on shims that KTM supply with a similar kit - a dual-valve-spring kit for ATV motors as I recall?). I'm not sure about the tolerance from spring to head body and don't recall any discussions on it, but it does look quite tight? I do know that members have machined the head to adjust the spring fit.

You might see some old arguments frozen in time when you look, but there's good info there
Thanks from bushmechanic

I don't recall seeing a kit out there. I'd get high-quality bearings from a general bearing shop. Local or online. I'd go with NTN in general based on Bushie's recommendations. I had very good results with the France-based online store when ordering for my DR-Z.

If you'd enjoy the rebuild work, then absolutely go for it. (I would!)
