I thought the shim replacement tutorial was still available on the GPz List 
Website but my link is dead.  Did I miss the retirement of 
http://list.gpz1100.com?  I can't find the PDF file on my home PC but I'm 
sure I have it at work.  I'll send it to you off list.

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 



Louisville and Hopkinsville now
