I haven't opened my up yet, shouldn't be so lazy and look at the service manual somewhere here in the new house. Is it like a ZX10 (88), I did those w/o any problem (not shim under bucket).

That's incorrect. It's basically a big-bore ZX-11. It's the same
valvetrain as the ZX-11, GPz1100, and ZRX, although the rocker arms
are sintered-tipped instead of chrome-tipped, supposedly for better
wear and lubrication. They went to shim-under bucket on the ZX-12R,
which was derived from the ZX-9R. You DO have to take the cams out on
those, and on the ZX-14 (and ostensibly the concours) which derived
from the 12R. 8-)
