I know people who have used them, and they seem OK, but you will need to use springs made for them since they are quite a bit heavier.

I got my Valves here http://www.hondaeasttoledo.com, cheapest I was able to find. Your looking at $54 per OEM valve through them. I found them through another guy on the forum and was happy when I did, just passing a good resource.

The second time that you have to shim them, they should be replaced and a full valve job performed (valves, springs, guides, seats, any worn parts, and shop machining). That can happen at 20 hours or hundreds of hours. Keep the air clean, the revs reasonable, and they should last a long time.
