Valve shim diameter

Hi ,planning on checking the valve clearances, looking around the web there appears to be 2 different diameter shims that ducati use on different models each size needing different tools to measure and remove shims, so can someone please tell me which size ,7 or 8mm diameter are used on the 906 Thanks

Re: HELP NEEDED Regulator Wires Brown & Pink

Sorry for late reply. I think the coils are normally live when ignition is on ie they have 12volts supplied from the ignition switch , the signal side is tthe earth through the ignition module so if the ecu earth connection is not good or non existent then that could be the cause of your problems
