Ok, the worst case scenario has happened. All the valves are bent and faces scored beyond salvaging. (Seats seem OK)

I need all new intake and exhaust valves. :( :( :( At £20 and £25 a piece that is an expensive £300 mistake!

[sigh]... I'll have to save up for that, so perhaps the next update may be a while...

Paul - I bought mine from 'getor-shop' on Ebay, but I just checked and they don't have any available. You could ask them directly.

Nikola (Sofiabg89) gives his contact on the forum so I copy it and paste:

Or call me. 650/703-4502


He has one set with springs etc. for $45 on Ebay, but I'd contact him directly. If you go this route (after all your valves are used as well) and missing a valve - I will throw in an old good one so you will have a set.

Yes it was I who got a set from Getor_shop Ebay $234.71 Cdn . Just looked it up. Might be worth dropping him an EBay post and see what he can do. He has the intakes and exhausts listed separately. He might repackage them as a total set for you.

I think he is still on Ebay and has a few according to these two Ebay item numbers:

392156511767
352527437939

They seem cheap..(-ish!)... are they ok quality?

Oz from Zed-Parts is also looking to see if he can find a used set in one of the blocks he has.

There seem to be quite a few blocks for sale on ebay UK and ebay US. Almost cheaper to buy one in US, ship it to one of your guys who can keep the block but send me the valves :-)

there's a head on EBay right now kz1300 cylinder head for $139 US plus for me $82 Global shipping program. If I change the shipping location to Port Huron the shipping cost goes down to $22. So I could have had a head for $159 US total. But now I'm 6 hours each way from that parcel post station.
So the dumb question is what if I sent you something from me to you. Is there duty involved?
