What would cause a few valve shims to come out of their "home"? I had a little ticking and by the time I got home it was banging and shaking. When checking the valve clearance I found 4 shims in the cylinder head. Before I put them back in, I need to know what would cause them to unseat? It is on a 95 ZX11 btw.

Sorry to say, I think the 3rd main bearing took a poop. There is play in the 3rd piston. No force at all. So, here goes the rebuild... If someone can tell me what I should replace parts with that would be helpful!!! I know the factory cranks suck. Also, there are some rods/bearings that are better also? Also, should I big bore it? Want to go the less money route but keep this bike and not have to worry about it. And what about the oil pan? Any help?

Theres no such thing as the less money route. Go with all the best shit the first time around and you'll have no regrets.
