I need these sizes: 240 x2, 235, 230.

The cross border shopping between Canada and the USA has stopped, due to the virus, so I need to reach out.

This could be an opportunity for someone else as well. Have some "spare" shims - not required - but knowing your valves might need some adjustments within a range you don't have.
Consider trading ! :)

0h yes, absolutely, it crossed my mind. I didn't mention it, because when I get to shimming the engine which is still sitting in the frame (that frame which needs all the brackets welded), I just don't know what I might need (I don't know what shim sizes are installed). So, truly it would be best if I could just buy them and all from one place. And that's complicated now with the closing of the borders...

I just messaged one seller on Ebay about shipping to Canada, and it seems to be an option, and quite affordable ($4.95 plus 0.50 for each extra shim). I'm not sure yet, but my cross border parts pick up in Point Roberts might be out of limits as soon as tomorrow. Kawasaki told me they could have them, at $20 each! Nope.

Let's see what's the answer.

Thanks for the suggestion scotch :)

Just got them from Ebay :)
They will come to my door, and yes, the shipping is 4.95 plus 0.50 for each extra shim. Best is to ask the seller and they will do a special listing, as Ebay became way too efficient at preventing a smooth purchase.
