    Need some advice on a rebuild-05 RXP

    I just bought an 05 RXP with 55 hrs in great shape excpet for the motor (which i knew about) but the rear cylinder had dropped two valves and tore up the head and put a whole in the top of the piston. My question is, what would be my best option to rebuild this? Obviously I am going to have to get a different head and piston but should I invest in light weight valves for every cylinder or would just replacing the bad cylinder's valves with new OEM ones be just fine? Just so you know I plan on keeping it fairly stock with the exception of just a few bolt ons here and there. What valve setup would be best for me? This is my first 4stroke ski and im not exactly sure which way I should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And if you know of anybody with an extra cylinder head, that would help too!!

    Lightweight valves are not necessary. Anything OEM 07 and up will be good. It's recommended to change all the valves, not just the ones from the bad cylinder. I recommend Speedfreeks Racing for any 4-tec head work.

    Ok thanks! So are you saying that my head can be redone instead of having to get a different one? I'll go get a picture and then see if its a loss or workable.

    Thanks again.

    im not as well versed with this stuff as many but form my personal experience modding is addicting. you may find yourself adding more and more and sooner or later wishing you had put in heavy duty stuff fro a ecu or something. it depends how much self control you have i have none. but fizz is right you don't need the titanium stuff if you are staying close to stock. you can run the stock internals up to 8360 rpm i beleive. that leaves you a lot of room for modding.

    just be careful you may find yourself always chasing that extar +.5

    I can see how that would be addicting. For now, as long as i can outrun my buddy's stock 00 GP1200R then ill be good to go . Thanks for the heads up though. Ill try to contain myself.
