yes, do the guides if you notice play.

i presume you know that the Ti valves are fookin dear at £450 or something. you can do stainless at about £250 if i recall right. hence you are looking for second hand?

I got a pair of exhausts that you could have - inlets were cupped so i did the lot.

or buy that one ^

You cant just fit stainless valves. You need springs and retainers as well.

Last one i did was a couple of hundred..... then you cant rev it like an SX anymore or it will valvebounce - they dont have Ti valves for nowt!

If you get the chance of a good used head for less than £200 then go for it.
