You can get it re-shimmed at any motorcycle dealer or Area51 does it in Bates city Mo or Smithers customs in kansas can do it... No you cant just buy Oem ones and swap them out they are different thicknesses and have to be guaged/spec'd to make sure they are within clearances.... I could do it but Im alot farther than these guys... Also if you've never worked on a motorcycle I wouldnt suggest trying to do it.... Get on KCsportbike.net would be better help....

just take it up to smithers in olathe.. they do top notch work.. i have had my bikes worked on there and am 150% happy.
