    compression test

    Does Honda give a standard compression pressure? I bought my bike used and didn't get the owners manual. With the auto decompressor, I know it would be lower but there should be a baseline to go off.

    Splitting the Case

    Forget about "tapping" WHACK the s&%* out of each crank end with a big dead blow hammer If that doesn't do it, make a case splitting tool (pretty easy)

    CRF450 clutch parts wanted

    All right. There's a Hinson on e-bay I'm going to try and get. The hub you have is in good condition, not notched?

    Should I get a new head?

    use the 45 first, that is the actual seating surface. You get a nice concentric 45 cut and narrow it with the 33 and/or the 65. You can also raise or lower the actual seating area with the 33 and 65. The neway stuff ain't cheap, there are different pilots for different engines, different cutters for different diameter valves, etc. I think the complete kit runs about $1500.00

    Should I get a new head?

    I've rebuilts lots and lots of engines and the seats can be recut to good as new condition. So its a waste of $ to buy a new head. Some bike shops have the tooling to recut valve seats. They are made by a company called Neway and they work great. Call around.
