gsxr 600 k6 replace titanium valves

Where can i get aftermarket titanium valves to my engine?
I need titanium valves better than stock. Stock valves burns after 15 hours.
Another option are steel valves but I lose 500 rpm.

What are you subjecting the engine to causing it to burn valves after 15hours?

You should be hole'ing your factory pistons long before you melt valves.

To my knowledge there are no aftermarket Ti valves for this model year yet. I had mine converted to steel but had constant valve lash problems.

The stock Ti valves are crap. 50-60k miles and your exhaust valves will become soft and start sucking up into the head.

Del West. Lots of money though. I've always used OEM on these even in world supersport spec with over 130bhp. Never had an issue.
