    rave valves on a 800 with 1mm over bore

    Do the rave valves need machined down for a 1mm over bore?

    I bought some used cylinders (suppose to have been stock 800 bore) and they are 1mm over size. I put the top end together with my rave valves from my stock bore cylinders and when I turn it over by hand with the head off it almost seems like the pistons just barley bumping the rave valve?

    how many cc is a 1mm over bore 800?
    thanks

    yes, they need to be cut back. You want a .020 gap or a little more but no less. However you do 20 thousandths is what I am meaning.

    can I double the gaskets on the rave valve to step it back?

    I wouldn't do that, just take a dremel tool and grind them back.

    So file or grind them down .020

    I was reading else where to take a calipers and scribe .020 across the end of the rave valve then file or grind it back?

    Is this the way to do it?

    Ok I took them to a machine shop and we took .025 off each one

    but when I got home and installed them they were still bumping the piston ring, so I took them out and took more off with a sandpaper paddle wheel and a drill until I had no bumping.

    am I going to be ok running these 1mm overbore cylinders? or am I asking for trouble

    when I bought them I was told they were stock but when I got them they are 83mm bores

    Thanks

    I just doubled up on the rave valve base gasket which lifted the valve a little higher and seemed to get the clearance in the ball park without grinding the valve it self.

    Put some sealant on the gaskets so there won't be any leaks and you should be good to go.
