Stainless or Titanium

Recommended Posts

I am considering going with High Grade Titanium Valves rather than the Stainless Steel "Kibble White" Valves on my '04 CRF450. I was wondering who has done that, and what they thought. I have also considered the price difference of the much more expensive Titanium Valves, but If your going to replace them, you might as well do it right. Any input on that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :cry:

Along with your question about which valves to use, what valve springs should be used? Should stock springs be used?

if you are going to install aftermarket titanium valves make sure that they have a casidiam coating or some kind of a hard coating im using a prapriorty coating that has a higher working temp than casidiam ,it wont mater how high of grade titanium you use if there not coated they wont last as long as the stock valves on the hard seats.

Thanks for the input guys, but I too am wondering about which Seats to use (Stick with Stock or go with a Softer Copper or Nickel Seat like "yzfmxer" said), and if I should go with Harder Valve Springs (I'm thinking that would be a good idea especially for the 450). :cry:
