Help! Looking for 25mm valve shims!

Guys, I've a trip coming up and need some valve shims. One intake valve on my Tiger has virtually no clearance. I need a 2.400mm shim. A 25mm diameter shim for any brand of bike ought to work. This is a shim over bucket arrangement. There is no variance in the buckets, so moving them around won't help. I've tried Snow City and GP Bikes, no luck. Does Royal carry anything? I'll try Cycle World in Scarborough tomorrow.

Let me know if you have any leads, or have anything you'd be willing to part with.

Thanks.

Sturgees is really far out, but I'll consider it. Thanks.

I forgot all about Winners Circle, thanks. Gave 'em a call, no joy. Nothing at Royal, nothing at Markham Powersports. These shims fit all the old Hondas and some Yamahas; I'm surprised they're difficult to find.

I'll keep looking.

I really should consolidate my shim collection. I'll take a look when I get home

I have some in that diameter, but nothing close enough to 240. I do have 230 and 250 though.

Edit: when do you need them and how many? I have to refill my kit anyway and will put some on order, but there doesn't appear to be many at the warehouse.

Thanks for your effort, I appreciate it.

I've found the shims at Sturgees, and a good pal (my brother!) actually picked them up for me.

I can already tell you I'm not going to come through, apparently I've never owned a bike that took 25mm shims. Correction: I have owned at least one, but I don't have any shims from it/them
