Yz 426 rebuild. What can you say about my valves?

9 posts in this topic

Hi

Due to pistone seizure I'm rebuilding my 426 engine. Con rod and piston has been rebuild 3 years ago and now I'll do even more. So pistone, con rod, cranckshaft bearings, main bearing, all selas, new water pump new cam chain and few more things.

But I don't want to spend a lot of money on my cylinder head if it is in good condition. So I've took of the valves and took a lot of pictures. Please take a look and share with me your opinion. My feeling is that thay are in good condition but I want to be sure.

Thanks for any feadback.

I don't know this link is not working properly. Now I've added directlinks so it should work perfect.

I Don't know what I'm seeing in this picture but the face looks to be pitting. From your pictures this is the only valve that looks in bad shape as long as the stems are in spec.

Hi

Steams are in specs.

The valves withi shining silver ring this are intake valves and both exhoust valves after celaning are looking like that:

As far as I remember they're looking exaclty the same as 70h ago.

I have this bike since 6 years. The head has been rebuild just before I bought it and I've re-shimmed just few hours after purchase and till now it's still on the same shimms. And the head is over 400h after rebuild.

Like this other guy said the only thing I see is the pitting. And the other way you can check to see if they are seated correctly is by putting them back into the head and spray some carb cleaner into the intake and exhaust ports of the head and look at the bottom of the valves for any leakage.

HI

Thanks for feedback.

I've done the leak test like it is in the owners manual. So I've pured some cleaning solvent into the intake and after this into the exhoust ducts and checked for leaks- result- no leaks.
