    07 head valves

    Hi i have a 07 engine coming from the states just wondering are the 07 valves prone to fail or just 04/05 valves?? the head already has a riva valve train upgrade kit installed.

    Any input would be great just want to make sure i dont drop another valve

    The '07 valves are considered to be much better than the 04/05 valves.

    Some of the '06 had solid valves as well.

    04, 05 and some 06 are the ones prone to failure, but all years could fail with salt water use without fogging, if u fog the ski u will be ok, but do inspect ur valves before running as u dont know their history

    gtile, u will not need valves, they are the 07 valves, mine since new, I don't do saltwater. The valvestems look like chrome through the ports Riding my ski every 2-3 days for the last couple years I can tell u that motor is as reliable as they come. I rode it the day b4 I pulled it for u, just get your ecu and enjoy! The way my hull sale is going it will be a few weeks b4 I'm riding again......
