SOURCE: please could some1 tell me
hi ther this is straight out of the vfr 400 manual so bear with me..
the measured clearence of a no.1 cylinder inlet valve is 0.20mm, so b =0.20.
the specified clearence range for an inlet valve is 0.12 to 0.18 mm the mid point being 0.15. so c=0.15
the thickness of the existing shim is 2.200mm, so d=2.2
therefore the required replcement shim a = 0.20-0.15 +2.2 (a=2.25mm) hope this helps

I would consult and owners manual for procedure and correct gap setting..after finding the correct gaps, you would need to pull the valve cover , position the timing mark as described in owners manual then losen and adjust valves.
