Does anyone have any valve buckets that they would like to sell or trade. I am in need of qty (3) - 2.75mm and qty (8) -2.8mm buckets. I have plenty of buckets with a qty 7 - 2.85mm, qty 8 - 2.9mm and qty 5 - 2.95mm that I can trade or if anyone needs some. Please let me know if you have any available. I see that they are really pricey at the dealership. Has anyone ground one down lately? If so, please share the procedure with me.

Thanks

I’m sure I have some of the 2.80 for you, I’ll check and let you know. That’s a lot of valves out of spec! I’m going to guess your bike is at 24k? That’s when I had to change 10 shims. Have not had to change one since, now at 62K.

Thank you so much for checking for me. No my bike has 180K miles on it and I purchased it with 70K. I hope to ride it another 100K before I need to put on another engine. By the way, I also picked up a spare engine years ago when it's time to replace this one.

I have 2 x 2.80 and 3 x 2.75 that are yours for the postage if you still want them. Took them off a 2002 LT in 2011. Text me at 615 585-9233.
