Is this the right feeler gauge set?

Hi all. I have the service manual and after reading the section over and over regarding adjusting the valves am very confident I can tackle the job. I replaced my own clutch. I imagine adjusting the valves is easier than that. My question is that my gauges have multiple numbers on each blade. Which one do I use?

What kind of multi #'s do they have? Are they a metric set or SAE? If you've read through the manual several times, then you know there set at In 0.15 and exh 0.20mm (+or-) 0.02mm Or SAE in 0.006 and exh 0.008 (+or-) 0.001 It's possibly or multi #'s on gauges are metric and American?

Sorry I didn't provide a picture for some reason my phone refuses to upload one. I think I got it thanks to your reply. I will try to explain best I can without a pic.

My gauges are labeled as such..... First blade is marked .004 on top and .006 directly underneath that. I assume the top number is for the thickness of the milled tip and the bottom number for the smooth blade itself. Directly to the right of those two numbers are two larger numbers. One above the other again except this time directly under that set is MM.

I am assuming the first set of numbers (left) are for thousandths and the numbers in the right are for mm.

You lost me there, but remember the valves are better off a tad loose than tight! So I usually set mine tight at (intake 0.17mm) and (exhaust 0.22mm) which is w/in the limits.

IDT it's all that bad, but removing my tank is a pita because when I replaced the fuel lever I used loctite.

Well......

The intake side was slightly off and the exhaust side was WAY off. Set them. Put it back together enough to fire it up and now it ticks. UGH!

Just so you know next time, it will run for awhile w/out the tank hooked up.
