Getting Valves done......

14 posts in this topic

10-4 on that. Pig that's an easy job. Why pay? You got a manual? I do mine every 1000miles and it's a breeze on the 650. Only thing that might make it hard on the 400 is the oil. However, both have the necessary site holes.

I actually have an offer from a great guy who is going to teach me to do them myself, which is what I prefer anyways, just never done it. 2 stroke is one thing, but I don't have a clue what the top end of a 4 stroke looks like............looks like schools in session.

I got a name you DON'T want to use... :thumbsup: ...he's local in S.D. :awww:

I too am (or was) a tad scuuurred... but will do my own next time. And my own tear down and rebuild too. I just learned too much to not do it myself. Check Ebay for the FULL service manual, I paid $15 for each one of my bikes.

Now... go sell that 5hun... and buy a CRF450... I did. :lol:

I hear ya...

Just a 5hun idling is something to be scared of.... that.. "doong, dooong, dong, doong..." :awww:

But seriously... I sold my STREET LEGAL 5hun for a 450... never looked back. Except for those hilarious times when cops would look at me. Usually perplexed. Like a dog when it hears an unfamiliar sound! :thumbsup:

Be scuuurrreeddd... vawry scurrrrreeed.

No I adjust my valves every 1000 miles. Where'd a topend come from?

Oh, I musta got confused with another thread about valve grinding, sorry for the confusion.

Along the same lines of redoing the valves, I saw a neat way to grind valve lips and seats on an auto performance show. They took the head and valve springs off, lifted the valves up a little, put some abrasive paste on the seats and set the valves back down. Then they stuck a suction-cup on the valve head. This then had a foot-long shaft on it, which you could twist between your palms or hook to a drill, spinning the valve in its guide. The abrasive action cuts new mating surfaces for the valves and seats without complicated tools. :thumbsup:
