I think I bought mine at either Home Depot or Lowes, maybe another hardware store. Took a caliper and measured to get what I needed that were the same thickness and ran with it.

If I could find them I would need to measure or show you a photo of what I have. It would take me a day or two to locate but i will look.
No worries..

I bought mine from Ace hardware, probably from 15 years ago, they should be SS but not certain. I wrote something on the bag, maybe a conversion, IDK.

The .020 bag is for the ones I measured that were the same, they went in the plastic bag for use on my carburetor.

The .020 is correct..
They look like larger diameter than stock, but it's been a minute since I have seen one..
I will use this to try to hunt down some locally..
THANX so much for the effort!!!

Hmm, I thought when I had mine apart that the shims were just little washers but my main concern was the jets. I will look for some washers now. Thanks guys.

By adding an additional .020" to the needle, it helps take the stumble that these bike have around 3-4K RPM..
