Not a problem, you probably wont notice any issues with running, if anything it will run better all around because most of the valve are back within spec. I just reshimed mine and all but 2 are in spec now and I noticed it has more power through the entire RPM range... Getting the other shims in is just piece of mind. Enjoy this riding weather!

"What they do have is an implacable, unrelenting presence and movement that bespeaks massive power lurking behind paint and chrome. They don't wail like a screeching ninja, the don't rumble like a harley. They just growl like a spactic, stressed out badger waiting to rip your face off and eat your soul." Trainzz~RIP~
