Just about done with my first attempt at adjusting the valves on my 08 hypermotard but I've hit a snag. When I was putting the half ring back on the valve stem it got wedged in this vertical position and now I cant get it back out. It's got the closing shim "stuck" to the valve now so when I push the closing rocker arm the closing shim just stays locked onto the valve stem and moves with the it. I've tried getting some needle nose pliers to try and get it out but no luck. The closing shim squeezing it means it's too much for my magnet to grab too. Here's what I'm looking at. Desperate for help/ideas...
