[QUOTE=equality72521;3598349]I'm thinking about tackling a valve job myself on my 930. I would need a machine shop to seat the valve properly but the rest I should be able to handle. QUOTE]

So what is "the rest" that you're speaking of? If you're talking engine removal and disassembly of the top end then by all means go to it!

If you're talking about disassembly of the head etc.. just let the machine shop handle that part, you'll be glad you did. You've got to farm out the machine work anyway.. it's not worth the time, special tools, and busted hands. Bet you've never been pinched by a valve spring or keeper huh?

The machine shop will disassemble clean and inspect the heads, valves, guides, springs, retainers etc.. grind the new seat and install the guides if needed... and you?
