Head Options

I have an 04 KX250F and its not starting,the intake and 1 of the exhaust valves are leaking,so I either need to get this head fixed or buy a new one,I contacted a local place to do the Head and they wanted $560 to install new seats and cut them,and a new head is $500,but it would still have the old valve seat material that the 04 came with,so would I really need to get new seats or could I just get the seats recut,or just buy a new head,did Kawasaki change the valve seat material in 05?,and what other places do valve cutting fo these heads?:thumbsup:

Napa should fix you up for WAY cheaper then 560.

Well there ya go.. Of course I'm gonna suggest dave at mxtime.com

$425 dollars gets you seats cut, new valves, new valve seals, new valve springs, & decarbonize the head!

Second to the OP.. buying a new head for 500 dollars does not include the valve train.. So you would still need new valves, valvesprings, valve buckets, collits, and seals.

i am amazed at how easy the 04 250f starts with a good head.

When I installed my head fresh from the shop, and went to fire, I did the first kicks to compression half kicks...well it fired up with those alone. i was actually shocked.

good luck getting your head worked. I was going to send my head to dave at mxtime, but after punching the numbers with my local shops, i was able to get the head rebuilt for less...but that was getting parts at just over cost. if i were to have to pay retail pricing, i would have sent mine in to mxtime without a doubt.
