......Someone needs to have a batch of valves with a true 7mm stem made. Harley's have 7mm stems. That would make a valve job way easier.
Bill- were the stems a true 7mm or sized under to use a 7mm reamer on the guides like the stockers? My point being a 7mm stem would allow the existing guides to be renewed back to spec. It's too much to ask for a new guide to land a valve exactly on the old seat. It would hopefully save you from having to fit NEW seats.I did have a batch of super-high quality stainless valves for 450's made by Ferara - no one here bought them. I sat on them for over three years.
Most of the people here are not willing to pay for quality, I discovered.
Pay $20 for a valve, a $20 valve is what you get.
Pay $60 per valve and you can get stockers (ugh), or you could have gotten some of mine.
Too late now, they're gone........I did put a set in my rider, along with brand new valve seats (not re-cut, NEW).
Shown here compared to stockers - though there is no comparison really......
