I don't like to reuse gaskets, so when I do mine, I purchase a new:
Valve cover gasket
Timing cover gasket
Water pump drain crush washer
CCT gasket

Also a good time to replace spark plugs if you are so inclined.

You wouldn't happen to have part numbers for those would you :oops:

Greetings,
I have a 2004 fz6s with approximately 58,000 kilometers on it, and the valves have never been adjusted. Upon disassembling the engine and reaching the shims, no markers can be observed on them.
What do you advise me to do?
Has anyone else encountered this issue?
Does anyone know what markers the original shims should have?

I used a digital caliper to measure the old shims (and the new ones).. And then change out accordingly:




Thanks, I see that I didn't told that some shims are out of their original form ( not a perfect cylinder, or a perfect round form). And because of that measuring with a digital caliper can be faulty.
