Anyone use Les cook's Retainers?
I was told they will be perfect with 8600rpm's with stock valve train. I am somewhat on a maditory build and budget so this seams to be a good way to go.
Any input and price?
Thanks a bunch!

I have them on my X with a 8600 rev limiter. The price I got back in the spring was $299AUD + shipping which is about $207 USD and shipping will probably be around $100 probably less, but you'd have to check with them.

I like it. You just add them to a stock valve train and you are safe to 8600rpm's?

Why not just add $200 more and get the Riva Valvetrain?
He is racing, buoy to buoy thats short distance.
You will be going longer distance. ( The springs may have problems then)

Are you guys running stock valves with the setup? And is on stock head or has it had some work done to it?
