A great idea, and I definitely would do it. But the shim(s) I need are actually larger than the ones I have, so that´s the problem. I will try the BMW thing, though, and I think Yamaha has a couple bikes with 29 mm shims, too.
Thanks, everybody. If you dream up anything else, let me know.
Also, a little off subject, need to buy a bike for when I fly home. Thinking about the Kawasaki Concours. Heard some stuff about a bad buzz and sloppy handling. Any of you guys know anything about that or have an opinion on the Connie?
