I have a feeler gauge bought local shop, I think it`s for car, I need to use two gauge on top each other some times to get correct tightness.

Do you know about a place I can order a one who is good for checking valve clearness on Kawasaki engines ?

I received the feeling gauge today, but these also have some gap ?
It jumps between 10 and 20, how can I measure where I`m between ?
For my engine the tolerance is 0.10 - 0.15, so I want to be close to 0,15mm ?

hehe

That is what I have done before also, but thought it was a bad solution 10+5 = 20 + X (since you adding two blade together = 17 ?
Oil between the blade give some extra thickness ?

I always felt this to be the case too. It would be easy enough to check with a caliper or micrometer, but I never have. Whatever it might be, it would be trivial.

Wiping the feeler gauge blades clean is a must. Debris can also be stuck with the oil.

But, yes, it would be best to use the proper thickness, assuming it is the proper thickness to begin with.
