Question 1000DS valve adjustment specs

I'm ready for a valve check and adustment on my 2006 1000ds SS
I see that the 2003-2006 1000ds motor uses the old 4-valve shims and split rings which I have plenty of. Sweet!
What are the valve clearances for this motor?
I can't find an aftermarket manual for the 2003-2006 1000ds SS.

Thanks Rico

I've got a link to a great to a couple of do-it-yourself web site. One is ca-cycleworks related, and the other is the ducati suite. The specs are on the sticker in your glove box (under the seat). But, most believe they are too loose and use these...These are fine and fall inside the factory specs so they should work perfect.

All closers (I's & E's) .000-.001" .002" MAX
I openers .003-.005"
E openers .004-.006"


'04 800SS...Strati Pipes, 42t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, ABM Rotors, Carbon Lorane pads, Cogent-Dynamics Forks & Ohlins Shock.

'05 749s...Termi 54mm full system, 41t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, PCIII/custom map, Pazzo Levers, Puig DB Windscreen, Penske Shock, CRS Forks, CF everything.
