Could't tell they were hitting until it fired.

Why would i suspect anything anyhow, all the timing marks lined up and were triple checked.

Only ran it for as long as it took me to reach the kill switch, maybe 1.5 seconds but that was probably enough to fk 'em being a high idle with the choke on, i'm guessing at around 20-30 impacts by what i heard.

i'll know when i fire it up again, that won't be until a new lock tab for the clutch basket turns up.

This is how far out the primary drive sprocket misalignment put the valve timing:

I think alot of it has to do with how the back of the valve is setup makes a diference to flow. I'd prob get the seats cut and stick in a set of Del West just so you don't have to reshim them as often as SS.

I think they're $130 a valve ?

I'm just riding a stock X at the moment.. original piston, valves, jetting.. just re-geared it to 13/52 and put a Q muffler on it. Gets along fine

Do you change the valve seats when you change valves?

Sorry to hear that rideo :-(

I don't know much about cutting them (apart that you should use someone that uses the proper multi angle tool). But as you cut out material the valve will sit further back in the head - meaning you'll start running lower shim sizes and eventually run out of shim space (and comb chamber size will gradually grow). Guessing you could maybe get them cut twice before you start to run into issues and have to consider new seats. Given a honda head is only $250ish USD though... not sure you'd bother.

Although I guess maybe it depends how much needs to be cut. The stainless valves tend to hammer out the seats. I've run the xcyldenes for 300 hours with no movement. I had to reshim my SS faction valves every 40-50 hours as they were clearly wearing out my valve seats.

I got lucky mate, once things were put back to where they should have been it fired up and no issues at all.

The fun hasn't ended though, i forgot to bend up the lock tab on the clutch basket so i got the lad to do the work needed to disassemble back to that point.

Once done i bent the tab and then told him to reverse everything he had just done.

All was going good until he was doing up the bolts to the inner clutch cover*, the water pump shaft didn't locate fully because of the copper washer, with no direct supervision he kept cranking until the casing went snap

Fk i'm so over working on/pouring cash into this thing...

Do you have one of these laying about by chance?


*Yes it has been pointed out to me that all i needed to do was remove the outer clutch cover but i was so used to just peeling that thing off that's what i told him to do, without giving it any thought.

It was meant to be educational, it has been that and then some, he has learnt LOTS from this little project..

Don't even contemplate it.
Come around and get what you need.
