    Keeping power valves intact

    Wonder if some of you guys could share some info on making sure you don't run into any problems with your power valves. Pulled my buddies engine in his GP800r to do carb rebuild only to find tiny metal pcs in exaust. Pulled covers of powervalves only to find one totally missing and the other disconnected from the linkage where it was making slight contact with the piston. I was amazed that the craft was still running . Now I'm concerned about mine on my GP1300r coming loose. Do you do a routine check on these things or is this a really rare occurance. His ski only had about 80 hrs on it mine has almost double. Any suggestions?

    You need to install Waveaters retainers to keep the pin from coming out and dropping a valve into the cylinder. It's a simple fix and cheap insurance.
