Should I replace just the 1 valve as I have a limited budget. Piston seems ok, has a slight mark but no cracks.
Think we intend to replace 1 valve, all valve seals and replace camchain. Should do the job I hope.

Many thanks for the info given, we are defo goin to put SS valves in, all 5 are getting replaced. And I've just told him to order uprated springs to go with them. As for cutting the valve seats, I don't think this will be done, due to cost and nowhere local does this kind of work. The seats look ok under close inspection with no visible pitting, scoring or burn marks. They look like new to be fair. I understand they will wear quickly, but hey let's see wot happens.. Ill update when the works complete. Getting fed up with the 4 banger now, too many moving parts and bloody expensive to re-build. Glad my kwak 250f is sweet as a nut!!
