Need Valve Guides Machined

I'm building a vintage roadracer using a Yamaha XS 650 and need a referal to a good machine shop. I am trying to install hi performance valves and guides, and need to have the guides honed/bored to fit the valve stems. Anyone have a good machine shop or dealorship they would recommend to do this work? I'm in The Woodlands, so an up north location would be great.

NW Honda MAY still have the ability to do the guides, give Corky a call over there.

Try Pasadena Kawasaki ask for Ron. He knows more about those bikes than most anybody around. If his shop can't do it he will know who can.

I called my brother and lo and behold he still has all my
old tools for that kind of work.
He's going to get them shipped to me, so bring the head by and I'll get it done.

The old shop I used to work at used ted's machine in conroe. They did some machining for my old 660 raptor build, and have built more than a few motors for that shop. Seem to be fair priced, and even did some smaller work while I waited..

I did. Not much to it, you heat the head in the wife's oven to expand it slightly, then pound 'em in using a special tool and BFH.

Oh well duuh. I coulda told you that. Put the new guides in the freezer while the head is in the oven around 3-350. Pull out the head hammer out the old guides and then hammer in the new ones. Works like a charm. Lol
