Installing valves is not difficult with a spring compressor.  I use a large plastic clamp you find at Home Depot and a L-bracket bent into a V shape.  There is a post in the How To section of this site.  The most important thing is getting the valve seats cut (3 or 5 angles) so that you get a good seal.  You can send your head to Agent Smith Racing and he will cut the seats and install the valves for about $75.  Keep in mind that you cannot lap Titanium valves.  Good luck.

I sent my 08 CRF450R head to AS Racing to have it totally rebuilt and ported. He did a fantastic job. I will gladly send him head work in the future.

Dont see how you can go wrong with a factory valve job and then APE blends the seats for a perfect transition from the port to the seat. Toped off with Stainless steel valves, heavy duty valve springs, titanium retainers, and new keepers for $550
