I have trouble finding large enough shims for my CRF450 2017 Showa forks.
I would need for the fork BV(6mm ID) size 36.15 and 34.1.
Most places offer 6mm ID shims only to size 32mm, I think larger sizes only apply in Showa A-kit forks and are not so common. Anyone know a shop, where I could order these shims?

I think I've got 34.1s, but I'll see if I have 36s.

The base valve on the 17 crf450 uses 12mm id. shims.

Thanks for the info, I have not tear my forks apart yet, I just found OEM shim stack and thought that BV shims are still with 6mm ID..
If you have worked already with this fork, can you please confirm ID for the rebound and MV as well, just in case.

Got a ton of 12mm id 36.15s. I do have only 34.1s in 6mm id.
