    riva valve train kit and tool expieriences

    i just installed my riva valve springs using the tool from riva ,,,over all expiernce ...say it is basically straight forward the directions that come with the kit and the tool are very clear ...and if you loose them you can go to rivas site and print new ones ...although i didnt need them on this one rivas tech line has also been very helpful but dont ask them about rude or rotax stuff ..but they definately know what they sell ...
    i dont really recomend this be a diy prodject for anyone who wouldnt feel at home inside of and engine.... although straigt forward you still can get into trouble..... these are some of the things i ran into durring my install and some better pick of what you will see and some possible pitfalls to watch out for it may come up in stages but ill get it

    The tool is great and makes it easy to do. The only suggestion I would make is a towel at the heads base, to prevent the keepers from falling into the oil hole galleys if one slips on you.

    first thing for all prodjects is clean you area ....clear the work bench and surrounding area... dont do it in the morning thinking you will ride by noon .... dont start tired ...or have a bunch of people around this is tedious and needs your full attention ..i am not saying it is hard just lots of small parts that if lost you will b sol....so take your time

    you need to remove the seat and seat cowel then pull the spark plug boots back ...lift the plastic cover off the valve cover and remove the bolts holding it on ther are some short ones that dont need t obe removed ...once you remove the valve cover remove the spark plug sleeves
