    Actually on my '17RT they got replaced under warranty after they leaked when the valves were adjusted and I needed to use RTV gasket maker to get home...... YMWV...

    Valve shims

    I made a list from Max site and got my dealer to order them all. I keep them current as I use them. They are not expensive but dealers rarely stock them and it could take a while to get the one you need.
