High Performance " Turbo" and Lightweight Racing Spring Kits with New H.T. Steel Retainers for Polaris® RZR 900/ 1000 Applications

KPMI® performance valve spring kits are modeled using cam profile and simulation software. By utilizing Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software, it was possible to take advantage of the increased strength and wear resistance of a heat treated steel retainer, while reducing its mass to within grams of a comparable titanium retainer. With two different spring pressure option kits to choose from, these are the ultimate setup for any Polaris RZR/ Ranger tuner.

Kit Includes:
•  Springs, H.T. Steel Retainers, H.T. Steel Basewashers, and Red Viton® Seals

New H.T. Steel Retainers for Various  BSA® & Triumph® Applications

Brand new state of the art finite element analysis software has allowed the KPMI® engineering department to reduce the mass of our heat treated steel retainers. Lightening holes have been added to the steel retainers without sacrificing any strength or durability. All shoulders and cross sections were also analyzed for other opportunities to further reduce mass. These efforts led to mass reductions of up to 25% over the O.E.M. retainers. 

Kit Includes:
•  Springs, H.T. Steel Retainers, and Basewashers

Ovate Wire Beehive Valve Spring Kits and Components for Harley-Davidson® Milwaukee-Eight 2007

By taking advantage of the latest development in valve spring wire chemistry and manufacturing techniques, KPMI® has developed ovate wire Beehive style springs that will live and Perform at a high level in Harley Davidson applications. By coupling these developments with strict KPMI® design protocols and employing multiple design, simulation, and FEA analysis software, we were we able to overcome the torsional stresses unique to ovate wire springs that previously severely limited their operating parameters. KPMI® Beehive Springs are progressively wound using Kobe Super-Clean chrome silicon based wire that is heat treated and shot peened. KPMI® uses its tightly toleranced, FEA designed hardened Titanium and H.T. Steel retainers in these applications to ensure correct assembly height and resist keeper pull through. The hardened steel basewashers included in these kits are designed to locate the spring and control lateral movement.

These Black Diamond™ valves for the Milwaukee-Eight were designed by KPMI® to achieve excellent flow characteristics. They are lightweight, one piece forged and made from high strength. They are available with standard head diameters or call for customs sizes.

We choose to use the copper based C63000 nickel-aluminum bronze as a material to make our bronze valve guides because of its ideal characteristics for the application. The 5% nickel content provides superior resistance to wear, and the approximately 80 percent copper content delivers outstanding heat conductivity. KPMI® guide profiles are designed to have minimal effect on the airstream while maintaining critical cross sectional thickness in high-temperature areas, which promotes high performance and endurance.

Lightweight Racing Spring Kit and Components for Honda® CRF™ 250R 2016-2017 

Since 1938, KPMI® has taken great pride in our ability to design innovative Performance improvements, valvetrains. This innovative ability has never been more apparent than with the development of the high tech lightweight racing valve spring kits, the incredibly stressed and torturous environment in today's high revving 4-stroke engines.
The challenge to engineer a valvetrain that would outPerform OEM systems, that in some cases included titanium components, was not an easy one. This task would require the concentrated efforts of every member of KPMI®'s design team. It was apparent early on that an OEM style spring with a bit more pressure was not going to be the complete answer, these engines. Working together as a team enabled KPMI® to evolve with a "unified system" approach. In fact, these innovative High-Performance Lightweight Spring Kit, would not only outPerform factory parts but outlive them as well. reach KPMI® spring kit is designed, its specific application, taking into account several critical parameters including; cam profiles, harmonics, a natural frequency of the springs, valvetrain mass, required pressure, wire stress, fatigue life, and engine rpm, just to name a few! Today KPMI® proudly offers complete High-Performance lightweight valve spring kits, a host of applications.

Nuts (Cylinder Stud), H.T. Steel , Honda®, CB™ 750 SOHC (Excluding F2™), 1969-1978

These nuts are manufactured from a high strength premium steel that promotes excellent surface finish and tight tolerances, two critical factors for achieving correct fit and torque. After machining, the nuts are heat treated to a specific depth. This creates hard, wear resistant working surfaces, while retaining a ductile core to prevent cracking under load. The premium black oxide treatment gives an excellent, corrosion resistant appearance.

Note:
•  Designed for Honda® CB750, but can be used for general purpose
