What kind of time frame are we looking at? I know there are quite a few of us that really need the new valves and don't want to spend the money on the stockers just as a short term replacement.

Ron,

Do you have any idea of the price of your new springs yet? Will it be comparable to the price of the springs and valves from Kibblewhite? I saw $211 for the springs set for the 450. If they really work, I guess it's worth it. If not, then I can't see paying that much for springs.

Thanks,

Jason

The stock ones are like 3 bucks a piece froim service honda. I could change 'em once a month at that price.

it will be a complete kit with titanium retainers and offer more seat pressure .there will be a gain in power in the upper rpm ranges because of better control of the valve train and will acept cams with more lift every thing that the stock spring can not do.a intermidiate rider can get by with the stock springs just fine.and just replacing them every race season .

So, if I were to get the new valves and springs from you, can I use the new springs with a HotCam or will I have to change springs completely to accomodate the bigger cam?
