08 'R' inlets in an 09 'X'

Recommended Posts

OK, reading the forum I know that the R inlet valves can be fitted to an X head by a machine shop but is there cross over between year models?

Problem is that I ordered a Kibblewhite SS inlet conversion kit from the TT shop for my 09 X but got the 02-08 R kit (part number 30-31210). Don't want to have to send it back all the way to the USA if my X head can be machined to fit these valves......

The X head can be machined to fit the 02-08 R valves. The seats must be enlarged to fit the 36mm valves from the stock 35mm valves.

It's best done by a shop that has experience, not by one that's learning on your head.

Thanks Doc!

Any need to change jetting with the larger valves? Currently JD 165 main (air box & exhaust modified). Sea level high temp high humidity.
