valve spec differance.

6 posts in this topic

hello :thumbsup:

my wr 400 has eaten its own big end and i'm thinking of doing the old bore out job on it. i have seen a few threads on here about doing the 426 conversion, but having seen 98mm big bore piston kits for sale for the 450 i have decided to have a go at somthing different.

i was wondering if any one knows the valve sizes of the 450 head compared to the 426 and 400, or were i could get this information.

thanks

Valve size for the 400 and 426 are the same. The 450 valves I belive are shorter and the entire Head was scaled down to save weight. There are a lot of dimensional differnces between the 426 and the 450.

Yes: I am pretty sure your timing chain will be too long. Among other things
