start with your average SS 5/16 or 8mm fender washer, that should be a good starting point

Use as large a diameter fender washer as will fit to best distribute the load. I recall posts in the past about smaller washers digging into the hulls of the FZR/S. I'm not familiar with the VXS plate-to-hull setup, but I'm pretty sure it's not much different from the FZ setup.

Place the washers between the ride plate and the factory shims......

not very informed on ride plate mods so this will sound dumb - when installing the extra shims, will you need to put silicone around them? I'm most likely going this route to fix the chining at top speed

nope, just put them in as is.

Front of teh plate needs 2 shims and the back 3
