You were talking about the 650cc Engine all the time. What about the 2000 600cc engine. Are Taffys or KWs kits also a straight fit?

KW are smaller outside diameter and shorter than all the others so generally dont require any work to the head or valve cover to be fitted as per the maufacturers specs to any of the husaberg engines.

the other sets are bigger OD and longer

Absolutely, I was thinking I'd have to relieve a bit of head material to fit my Kibblewhites but they went straight in no mods at all. The only hold up was admiring those titanium retainers! Very happy with them and personally wouldn't bother running anything else.

Meanwhile I received the KW springs. Ill have time next week to do the job and change the valve springs. Which special tools do I need (except for valve clearance needed)? Do I need a spring press? Do I have to take off the head or can I leave it installed?

You'll need the head off and as you say a spring press.

If you have access to an air compressor, after removing the spark plug, you can use a fitting to connect the air hose to the plug hole and hold the valves in place. That way the head stays on. Will need a special lever or proper valve spring compressor to be able to remove the collets though.

If the head is off, I just used a crude method of a large g clamp with a piece of tube and a window cut out of it. I reckon I would've even impressed bushy with this method....

Or you can be professional like and just use said valve spring tool.

Once the collets are back in, tap the top of the valve with a copper hammer or similar to double check everything has seated nicely.

(Sorry plumbbob, not trying to undermine you mate)

Good luck

Damo

No worries Damo, the compressed air in the compression chamber sounds like a time saver.
Just don't drop a valve collet down by the cam chain Duc851

Haha indeed, unless you like using profanities!

Because you know it won't just gently fall to the bottom of the cover. It will have to get stuck somewhere inaccessible halfway down right!
