Despite searching, I'm not entirely positive on the valve shim diameter so that I can order a kit.
Based on what I've read here, it seems the '99 ZX-9R uses 7.48mm shims.
Of course, I have two kits of the 9.48s from my old ZX1100E and other bikes, so naturally I don't have what I need for the Nine.
Thanks.

Yeah, good, thanks.
Now to get past the OEM manual telling me to "remove engine" to pull the cams. Jeez.
Yes, I know that makes it really easy, I did that on a GSX-R600 I did up last winter, but I needed to change the head gasket too (don't put water in the cooling system and forget about it for three years, as the previous owner did to that bike!)(Kept the price down, though).
