you simply need to take the measurement you got with you feeler gauges and figure out the difference between that and the spec, for example, when i did my ltz400 all mine were within spec except one intake valve, spec was between .1-.2mm and mine was at .254mm, so it was too loose, the shim that was in it was a 2.65. to get mine right within spec i put in a 2.75 shim which brought my clearance to aprox .154 nicely within spec.....hope this helps
