    Where to find a Feeler Guage to reach middle valves on MR1 engines

    Ok, perhaps the 4 stroke guru's can help a brother out. I am redoing the head on a vx100 and I have it all put back together. All 20 valves, shims and buckets all in there rightful places and I don't have a feeler guage narrow enough to squeeze in between the the webs on the camshaft retainer caps. Only the center 4 valves are out of reach and all the other valves on the head are within spec. Since I used different cams from another head and the , I have to make sure the clearance is OK on all valves. Is there some sort of "special tool" from Yamaha for doing this? Somehow the 20k or so worth of tools I currently have seem to missing this vital item.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    You can find Bikemaster tapered sets on ebay or your local Yamaha Motorcycle dealership. They sell the narrow ones for the MX bikes.

    Scott,
    Thanks for tip. I also found since I posted this that some have just taken a pair of scissors and cut a cheap set down to size. (the intakes are really thin) Duh... I ordered the set you found as I didn't want to trash yet another pair of scissors. Thanks again.
