found Jake Wilson do shims that fit the 675 for $1.49/shim. Looks like 01 GSXR750s use the same diameter shims. Wish I had found this out before buying from Triumph!

The 675 uses a standard 7.48mm diameter shim.
They are used by most 600cc, 750cc, many 1000cc, as well as dirt bikes, and ATVs of all makes.

If you need one quick, most dealers and performance shops keep all sizes in stock and will do a 1-for-1 exchange. Or you can purchase individual shims, packages of shims, or shim kits from Pro-X, Hot Cams, etc.

Personally, I prefer OEM or Hot Cams shims over the Pro-X brand.

I hope this helps.

I got with my digital micrometer 7.48mm. So that means we can buy those other shims your were talking about that are far less expencive. You can get a whole shim kit for the cost of 3-4 triumph shims!!!! I wish I knew that before I bought mine from bikebandit. Well at least others won't have to wait 2-3 weeks for there shims.

Here is one that is really cheap but the size for these is 7.50 so it might fit.

This one is dead on but more expensive but still a great price.

I'm still working on doing a how to for actually replacing the shims but haven't got the parts yet.
Neither of these links work. Anyone know a place to get reasonably priced shim kits?
