You can do valve lapping, if I can do it you can.lol @ valve being powdercoated shut..
That said, I doubt they are all like that. Plenty of people running Finbro stuff and plenty of dealers selling it. There is a guy in the race section of this forum that has put 2K track miles on his Finbro super head without issues. I can see running a super head in the future myself. Lapping valves is way beyond my expertise, however.
basically what mine is too. i also 3d printed the bit to hold the springs tho so it would sit nicely on the plate, and still allow you to get your fingers in to place the keepers.Ill take a pic of my valve spring compressor, but its a simple C clamp with a wooden fork on the business end so you can compress the spring, then properly place the keepers instead of hoping they fall into place.
If i was doing more head rebuilds id buy that! Awesome deal there. Maybe way down the road if i ever have to do a refresh on the WR450 with its 5 valve head!for a bit more than the price of large c-clamp, this makes valve jobs so much easier. combine it with a magnetic pick-up tool and the keepers are out with ease.
in regards the suction based lapping tool, only works well if the valve is clean. i usually put the valve in drill and use various grits of sandpaper to clean off any deposits. once done, the suction tools works just fine.
Freaking technology! Thats cool Did the 3d printed plastic hold up?basically what mine is too. i also 3d printed the bit to hold the springs tho so it would sit nicely on the plate, and still allow you to get your fingers in to place the keepers.
Very well, yeah. I made one for both the stock head and the Koso head (?18mm? retainer vs stock ?22mm?).Freaking technology! Thats cool Did the 3d printed plastic hold up?
So this entire thread talking about the SUPERHEAD quality is actually going off of your findings on an OVERSIZED 125cc Head not the Superhead as stated in the OP? If you got the standard oversized head thats the exact same I've had for the past 2 years. getting close to 3,000 track miles on it and not a single problem. I didn't mess with it I didn't try to clean it up, I just threw my DCR stage 2 Cam in it and Koso 34 flipped on top and was good to go. Even with the Cam that 1/2 the ppl on this forum swear doesn't work with the finbro head! Runs like a champ and I ride the piss out of it. Hell I even forgot to put one of the guide pins on the new head before I installed LOL guess I lined it up and torqued it just right!Also note, franco again delete all of my comments to his combative reply on the FB post.
He must like you. I spend quite a bit of money yearly with them and that's lower than my cost without even factoring shipping in.I purchased my 27/23 directly from the monkey father for $190 shipped. Took three weeks to get it. FF in my opinion.
