This is for the GEN I bike.....the body component removal will be different. You may have to adapt to your situation there.....the engine information applies, and that's what I would be paying attention to.
Hang on to this:
Before I pulled it apart, I'd be snooping the neighborhood for shims. Why? Because every single time you pull those valve cover bolts out and re-torque them, they are silently screaming "STRIP ME". As many bolts and holes have been stripped with properly used torque wrenches as not. Go in, do your job, get out. This 29mm shim was used in the ice age KZ Kawasaki bikes, the two cylinder BMW K bikes, F650 BMW Thumpers, 2003 and older. The Yamaha Seca, Bombadier ATV and some others used this shim, including 1995 and older Ford Taurus SHO. There are kits for sale all over the internet. They offer a wide range of shims, most you'll never need or use. At four -6 bucks a pop, I ain't buying anymore than I need.
Chances are, you can swap shims from one bucket to another to gain some of the desired clearances. You might need one or two replacement shims. I'm too tight to lay out for a kit of 46 shims, 30 of which will never be useful for more than stabilizing a restaurant table leg.
Here's an example of an offered shim kit:
In my experience, the shim range used for adjustment on a KLR 650 are between 255 and 235. The rest of the kit is dead weight, at about twelve cents a gram. Having that on my shelf ranks right up there with the pride of owning blue sky....
I think its become a corporate policy for Kawasaki dealers to not even stock toilet paper. The chance of finding shims there are slim. An independent motorcycle repair shop may have their own kit, as the BMW's and KZ Kawa's required frequent adjustment, and was a standard, routine maintenance item. Usually a few bucks for their time of mic-ing and swapping will cover the cost. Have the shims mic'd. What is stamped on a used shim and what they are can be two different things. FYI: 29.5mm shims won't fit in the bucket. While the mic is out, check the diameter...
