Kibblewhite intake Kit..Anyone use?

Hey guys , doing complete head rebuild on 06 for upcoming racing season.

Anyone every use Kibblewhite intake valve kit ? Thanks

We use kibble white valves in all of our bikes. Since you have a 450 I would suggest that you run the steel valve. They are far less maintenance iv seen bikes go 100+ hours without a adjustment. Just make sure you get the heavy duty springs with if you fun the steel valves.

Isn't it true that the steel valves beat up the valve seats more? Do Kawi's have issues with the titanium valves breaking?

Thanks Tyler ... Sound advice man! Steel has been golden ...

+1 No issues with the Ti valves in Kawi.

What sound advice has Tyler given you? Did I miss something?

Kawi has a reputation for valves that stay within spec for a long time.

Ti valves will last much longer in these 450 engines than stainless. Maybe in an engine that at most sees lower rpms, stainless might beat out titanium. But titanium is some good stuff regardless. In higher HP applications Ti valves are just plain better.
