Has anyone used the wiseco titanium valves? Are they any good or should I stay with oem? Not going bigger but want to make sure they have a backcut and are reliable. I can get them for a good price so I'm just wondering. Thanks

On my ktms which have titanium del west valves stock, i can promise you that then never stretched. I never had to adjust my clearance on them. to the point i stopped checking them regularly because they never moved. On the YFZ so far ive found the same thing. I will say that Stainless valves were the same outcome on another machine. Would i worry about valves stretching, no... I also wouldnt say i believe they stretch if you use good high quality valves. cheapos, maybe...

I have no problem going back oe if they are the most durable. I can get wiseco and pro x at dealer cost that's why I asked. If there are any other brands like del west or ferrera that are more durable i may go that route. Just wanted opinions and experiences.

My 07 had bad valves when i bought it with 0 compression, depends how you take care of your bike i assume also, i like to buy things i know will last insted of buying them twice. Just my 2 cents and on here it is worth less likes every one elses 2 cents.

This forum is full of haters.

Stainless are known to be inferior valve systems to titanium. Weaker. Heavier. Stiffer springs will be needed also.

I'm definitely staying with titanium. Just wanting to know what is the best performing most reliable brand of titanium valve. The two I mentioned are the ones that I can get for the best price. BTW shaftman, I love the look of your bike, mine is an 07 grey/red and yours is exactly what I want eventually.

Thanks! Gray/red is by far my favorite combo for o.e. colors. They just pop together. It was a long road... well not really that long. Lol.

It still gets parts! Just picked up a used duncan steering stabilizer for it. That pic was before I had my alba cap and other parts that you can't really see.

Next winter tear down for powder coat. Swinger, frame, etc. Want it to look better than new.

When I got the 06 head I run curently from here a few years ago,the center valve was shot.I bought a lonely Wiseco titanium on Ebay and it was pretty impressive to look at and has not gave me a problem ever.Never had the seats done,just dropped the valve in.It was new and if I remember paid like $30 shipped(what a deal).Anyways I was pretty impressed with the qualitly.
