Newbie hello with issues

Hello peeps. I'd like to just introduce myself a bit before I dive into my issue. I ride a 2008 zx6r. It's black and fairly standard apart from exhaust and a few other pretty bits.
It's got 26k on the clock so I'm doing my valve clearances at the mo.
The picture shows the results. Of the intake they all seem ok. Piston 4 could do with an adjust as it's in spec but only just. All of the exhaust ones, however seem very very tight. Like they should be between 0.24mm and 0.31mm. I've measured, spun the crank and measured again. Double checked the pistins were in the correct place and measured a third time with no difference. Any thoughts? Cheers

Probably a bit more wear on exhaust as they run hotter or maybe set tight at factory but I would not worry about it, I would fit correct shims and ride!

Don't look back, your not heading that way...
