Are hotcam shims compatible with a 1998 748? Or does Ducati use special shims for valve adjustments?

Ducati uses a desmodromic valve system which is unlike all other valvetrains. There are specific shims that are required. If you're not familiar with desmo systems, there's a wealth of information here, at lots of other websites, and on YouTube. I highly recommend getting the service manual from the tech section sticky as well as purchasing the guide written by LT Snyder of Desmo Times.
