    My opinion, they are good valves but people have still seen them fail. RPM depends on what else you have got in the valvetrain with titainium valve retainers you could run 9000 with these valves.

    If I were you I would contact Les cooke (seadoo Centre) and tell him what you want to achieve he will point you in the right direction. Les does tome retainers which are very good and he has light weight stock valves. They have been mechined to make them lighter. R88
