06 RXP's dropping valves
Has anyone had a problem with 06 skis dropping heads off valves just like the 04 and 05 ones. ?
Exacally the same as the trouble ones that no one would own up to ?
I thought the 06 had a totally different head set up, with one piece valve and possibly the same bottom end, if you did a check on block serial numbers.
Had a problem with a STOCK ski with 119 hours on it, dropped an exhaust valve and bent the inlets.
Yes a mess, and a piss off big time

But the problem is nearly always caused by not fogging the engine when its going to sit for a long time or water injestion both of which cause corrosion to the valve stems which causes the valve to stick down and get hit by the piston.
