just curious as to why? indy_wr450 has like 10,000 mi. on his,been adjusted only 3 times and just now are ready for a rebuild. mine have a 1,000 + mi. and are still at the same spec as when i checked em' after breakin! you didn't ride a CRF before did ya?
the factory items are very good yes, but i am putting in some stainless valves with titanium springs in place of the stockers.

The combination of these reasons is why the work is being done and why i have the valves up for sale.
As for the stainless being soft as suggested by toyota_mdt_tech it depends what grade you are talking about, 304 grade (a2-70) has a tensile strength of 70000 psi and is one of the softer of the stainless steels used in industry. I would like to ask though with all due respect, what is it you are comparing it to in saying it is soft? the other side of the coin is that the harder the material the more brittle it is and hence more likely to shatter.
Oh and no i didn't ride a crf, ever, and i dont plan to anytime soon either.

As far as the valves not shattering goes as simon points out, the comment was made in a general sense, albeit by someone who is not a metallurgist. The valves shattering is as yet unrecorded as far as i know, though still entirely within the realms of possibility.
