theres a list of manuals and the predator is in there...theres a whole chart that tells you exactlly what shim you need in replace of what you have

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
