When to rebuild?... Valve Replacement
Posted April 11, 2008 - 08:59 AM
My question today is should I bother with the valves if they look OK. They are the original with about 50-60 hours on them. I believe these are the titanium valves and I saw the set of five would cost upwards of $350 bucks. I don't want to spend the cash if it isn't needed but I'm not sure the life expectancy of these titanium valves. Thanks for your help.

I'm not sure of the life expectancy of the valves either but it will vary considerably depending on the how the bike was ridden, raced?, air filter cleaned and changed, oil changes...blah blah

I have looked over the other componants but I don't really have experience this deep in the motor. Unless it is obvious I may not catch it. Are there any trouble spots or keys items that I should give further attention to, take measurement of?
