Out of lurk mode............SHIMS

I haven't riden for about a year, and when I parked her, she was running rough.  When I bought it there was ~9000 miles, and not there are 21000.  I have never done a shim adj/replacement.  I am sure this makes me a very bad person on some level over the last 6 years or so.  I have the factory manual, but no parts.  I was trying to find out about just paying someone to do it but of course no dealer wants to touch anything more than 10 years old and the "best guy in town" is at least 2 weeks backed up and wants more than $300 for doing it.  Soooooo, since I have been quietly lurking for the last couple of years, I am out of practice for finding all the old posts, and certainly don't recall what to order from the stealer/parts places.  I know this has been rehashed over and over, but the wisdom of the ages would be appreciated once again.  

By the way, the facebook thing could really be neat and effective since posting pix and video would be much easier.  Maybe I will do that with my work....
