Spark Plug Gap for 1986 VN750?

Does anyone know what the gap for plugs is for a 86 vn750? I can't find it in the service manual. I am going to clean my plugs and make sure they are gapped properly.

0.8 - 0.9 mm according to my manual. This is in metric measurements not 10ths of an inch in SAE.

0.8-0.9mm or .032-.035

I always used .034 because I have a few gauges with that thickness around.
