I was able to adjust all my valves including an exhaust clearance under spec by switching around and thinning some shims with fine emery cloth and metric micrometer. At 4500 miles, I set all my inlets at 0.18 mm and exhausts at 0.26 mm, all in middle of range for optimum balance and equal lift and duration between all valves, and to be furthest away from spec limits... The first inspection is the most critical. Clearances shouldn't vary much over time if it was originally properly set and settled within spec upon break-in, and/or after first adjustment.
