Well I got my head back from Ron Hamp with the port job and stainless valves ect. also got my J&E piston. Ron has been great to do business with, very patient and helpfull. I bought a NEW head and sent it to Ron so I would not have any down time. so I have my stock head for sale. I had it in the classified adds- a couple of bites but no one stepped up. I got it off last night. valves were in speck and the valves look good. sprayed wd40 on top of valves -- no leak. I have been hearing all the talk of valve probs but both me and the previous owner rode the bike relativly easy and changed oil after each ride. The previous owner had the valve clearence checked a couple of times and never had to adjust them. The engine ran fine but I was concerned about amount of time on the piston which is what spured the rebuild. just fyi I will post when I get it fired up.
