07 450f head/valves exploded

I blew up the valves on my 07 450f and I need a whole new top end. Where should I look for a new head and cylinder? Is it ok to get a used head and have the valves replaced? Or should I just get a brand new one for 600$? I haven't even found a head that will fit mine on ebay.


That is a major failure, don't skimp out and just do the top end. A lot of the time when that happens the bottom end goes soon after if it isn't replaced. If you can find a used head, replace the valves and save your self some money over brand new. From here it looks like your head is missing a valve seat. Do you have a closer picture of the head?

The head appears to be repairable.
