I speak not from actual experience (yet, but very soon!), but my
understanding is that the more-recent  Japanese bikes generally use one of
two diametric sizes - 7.48mm and 9.48mm.

Also - HotCams kits are available all over the place, and even better, if
you know about the right size range you need, you can get a "refill kit" for
cheaper than a whole kit.

Here's one site: http://www.procycle.us/hotcams/valve_shims.htm
