I need a new one and found that you have to purchase the ENTIRE head assembly to get them!

Does anyone know where to get one of these, new or used, without buying a new head? Yes, I've checked e-bay.

I have some! We just trashed the head but the buckets are still good. Mine are out of a 2008 yz 450. They dont have 2 hours on them! I dropped one of the intake valves and trashed the head. Yes we had to buy the whole assbly!

You do understand that you cannot swap cam caps from one head to another without sending the head out to be line bored, right?

Also, you are not allowed to place "want ads" or trade parts in the forums.

It is not a huge problem with them and obviously anything that starves it for oil can do it. I see it most when the caps are over torqued, use a good digital torque wrench on them. Also aftermarket cams seem to be a little rough on the 450F and 250F heads. I know of a company that fixes them really well and will be glad to post it if it is OK with grey or you can send me a PM.
