Glad to hear they made it...only 7 days...Canada Post is pretty good. Not as good as Amazon but still pretty good.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Looks like this will work. I may hone them more when I set up for the Andrews cams. Might make them more even as well.

It really should have read "WELL USED..."

JUST PLAIN JUNK. Seems good parts are getting few and far between. Was looking at exhaust valves and the used ones listed you can't even see. This guys obviously trying to pull a fast one.

Too dark to see.

This guys a crook.

I bought 4 new ones. The ones I have in the bike now I tipped. Getting some popping so they may be like the Doremi valves I took out.

I think I'm ready to do the switch. B)

You can still get OEM valves but only for intake. (or is it exhaust?) I looked because I was interested in a set for my engine rebuild.

Are you happy with the Doremi valves Steve?

They didn't seem to hold up as well as OEM. I'll know more when I take the intakes out this time. They appeared to be lighter but I weighed them and they're not by much.

OEM

Doremi
