    Valve shims

    I am looking to check my valve shims over the winter, the bike has done 46000miles and makes a bit of noise from the heads, it actually runs very well and has not had any problems in 5 years.

    Could some of you experts give me an idea how diificult this job will be and any special tools I need + were to get them from or how to make them.
    I am pritty good at wheelding a spanner and have a well stocked garage!

    I have got some tech tips from the AF1 Aprilia forum but would value your opinion.
