I've got to source X8 6mm washers to refit the cam holders on my CBR - this is them in the pic;

These OEM washers are £3.88 a pop which is over thirty quid all in! :eek

Some much cheaper ebay 6mm aluminium washers should be just as good right?

Or should I stick strictly to OEM washers for the cam holders on the basis that if the thickness of the ebay washers is slightly different from OEM this might throw out the torque specs?

Obviously this is not a problem for more mundane applications - but this is for engine internal components - where everything has to be spot on and corners should not be cut to save a few quid?

Sorry to be so pedantic - but anything going on under the valve cover induces this kind of paranoia in me :angel

Thanks for any advice, opinions etc.
