    Just chiming in so I can grasp how worried I should be. Springs, retainers and valves will set you back between $700 and $900 for just parts. If yours happens to be one of the unfortunate it would fall under warranty (assuming within the first year and likely based on testimonies of low hour units). Is there any similarities with those with the issues? I haven’t heard any talk of how they were ridden, broken in, newly bought in 2019 or late 2018 or later production 2019. Just curious. Of course we hear about the ones affected 100% of the time, but it does seem odd that all units having the same parts are not experiencing the same issue, so what is the common denominator? I ask because I don’t plan to upgrade my motor.

    If you dont plan to upgrade just let the warranty take care of everything, buy the 3 year and pray after that, or upgrade the valves only at some point

    I'm mainly doing mine because I only have a 1 year warranty and I bought the ski with the intent to modify it. I can't rely on the warranty or the factory valves at this point with so many confirmed cases of dropped valves. Also even if warranty covers it, they are only shoving the same valves back into it to create the same problem again. I'd rather pay some change for a built valvetrain than floating like a bobber in the water when the valve finally lets go. Might be next time I ride, or 50 hrs from now, but I refuse to eat the bill for pistons and whatever else gets destroyed when it chews a valve. Ideally, they'll do a recall with a new part number before my rebuild, but with a major part like that, I'm not counting on it. With my goal being 8800-9000rpm eventually, I may as well get this out of the way now.

    I like your style too, finally a customer who is not just complaining and being proactive.
    This is exactly what I was looking for. I didnt see the point at 11 hours having guides and seats redone. I can swap the valves, springs, retainers, and maybe stem seals and call it a day. Probably throw in some ARP head bolts too while im in there.

    don't touch the cam unless you're ready to datalog and dick with your timing and fueling table. You'd be better off just adding boost and a canned tune meant for the charger you pick

    Famous last words.... my "canned tune" needed 30% more fuel up top and had to pull 20% off bottom.
