    WaveEater or R&D???

    O.K. I have been reading alot more on this forum. It appears that there are 2 main concerns for my 04 gp1300r. The "D" plate & the exhaust valve situation, so here is my question: should I go for the cheap WaveEater system, or the billet R&D valves?? Also should I be concerned about the pump tunnel, and if so, where do I find the kit??? Thanx!!!!

    just go with the wave eaters for now, r&d valves take some machining to fit i believe. cant find a kit for the pump tunnel just buy the reinforcement off the store here. www.4-tecperformance.com and get a tube of 3m fast cure 5200 and 04+ shoe brackets. theres allot of ways to do this.

    The r & d valves have a very nice pin encapsulation block...very nice design....they need machining for big bore

    if i'm not mistaken SBT has changed their lever links to a solid encapsulation block. the pics on the site depics an old style one. you can also buy these separately.

    I have an 04 1300 with over 500 hours on it and I put the Waveeaters on it when it was about two days old.. So far no valve trouble at all..
