Best SS Valve Kit?
Posted December 24, 2005 - 12:30 PM
So I am going to open up the floor to sugesstions on the following -
Is there a best deal on a valve kit? (I know of Kibble White here on TT but is there a better/cheaper alternative?)
Anything that my factory shop manual is not gonna tell me when I attempt surgery?

I am also assuming that I should use new springs as well

My 400 valves were CHECKED once only, in spec and never checked again, the bike is still running as strong as the day I bought it, No Ti
I'm also very interested in knowing if going with oversized valves will provide a cost worthy performance bump

I'm actually going to replace my valves and springs this winter and I think I'm going to back with the OEM stuff. I've only adjusted my valves once, but they have had a hard life and I'm feeling guilty about riding another year with them.

Yes absolutely, for more than one reason. You should do a search, you may find some answers on this forum. You should also go over to the DRZ forum and do a search there, I remember some guys changing there valves out to Kibblewhite and also some swapping to another brand that I can't remember the name. Ferrer? ferrar? I can't think of the name, go ahead and do some reading over there you'll find it.
