R&D adjustable cam gears
If I want to install R&D adjustable cam gears with the RC2 cams , on which number shuld I adjust the gears to avoid my FZR engine breaking ?

The RC2 cams have quite a bit more lift so its recommended that you upgrade the valve springs when using them. R&D makes a good recreational single spring kit that will work with them. As far as cam gear settings go, you can run them wherever you want. There isn't one setting that is going "break your engine". All they are doing is changing the LSA to wherever you want it.
If I knew more about your setup I could recommend a setting. How much boost do you plan on running, with what tune, what fuel, and how high do you plan to spin the motor?

Do the R&D gears have the little tabs like the Riva ones do? It doesn't show them in the pictures, and doesn't say anything about them. Which is better; the Riva gears or R&D?

I've been thinking about trying out Riva's. I kinda like the "quick-tune" design that can be adjusted without messing with the tensioner.

The only gasket you should really need to replace is the one for the chain tensioner and if you get it off without tearing it chances are you can reuse it. The manual also states to replace the seals on the oil feed tube to the tensioner as well, but I have reused them a few times.

I thought the shims was for the Valve lash adjustment?
