(scroll down to 9 piece feeler gauge)

i need to order from mikexs for a few things anyways and it's half the price with more sizes.....
A feeler guage is a feeler guage is a feeler guage.
The only differences are SAE, Metric or actual size (length & quantity).
My feeler guages all have both Metric and SAE markings on them.

sorry, should've been more clear.

i was referring to the bend at the end of the feeler gauge. is it necessary to adjust the valves with a feeler gauge with a bend at the end, or will a straight feeler gauge give me clearance to get the right space.

The type with the bend in them do simplify things and should be more accurate in the end.. On my DRZ the bent variety allow you to adjust clearances a lot easier...
