Honda 300 Gear Setup

So I've finally got the 300 stripped down and now have my gears on order.

I'm building a rear-end from a donor bike. My question is which "shims/washers" on each side of the ring gear do I need? Should I just re-use the ones from the donor rear, or (since there are like 20 different thiness washers listed at honda) do I need to experiment with the different washers until I get the correct gear contact pattern?

Since there are so many different washers/shims listed at Honda, then the housings must not be perfectly cast thus having to shim the RG over a bit to get the correct gear contact pattern...

no one?

I finally have the frame completely primed/painted.

Wheelbearings replaced

Balljoints Replaced.

Front brakes done.

Gears/bearings/seals should be here next week.

The bearings on the old RG are pretty seized there...I think I'll cut the bearing off with a cutoff wheel and reuse the shims. I'll let you guys know how the gear setup turns out for future reference!

either reuse the stock shims, or order the middle shim if you choose new ones. thats just a good starting point. im sure there is a proper way to decide, i just dont know it lol.

oh and where are the pics of this build?
