Beehive Racing Valve Spring Kit and Components for Honda® Various 1000's Applications


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 Honda® 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.

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.


We fully CNC machine our White Diamond® Valves from a one-piece forging of either EV8 Stainless Steel or Inconel-751. These materials have proven heat and corrosion resistance properties. Each valve is designed using Finite Element Analysis software, and profiles are tested on our computerized flow bench. Strict attention is paid to the surface preparation of the valves, and the purity of the chrome is closely monitored. A 360 degree anode is used to produce the highest possible grade of hard chrome finish. White Diamond® Valves are light, strong, one piece forgings with profiles that provide excellent flow characteristics

Guides, +0.025", Mag. Brz, Av&V Style for Various Harley-Davidson® Applications

These Engine Builder valve guides have been designed with the price conscious builder in mind. Expect the same exacting KPMI® tolerances, but with a reduced toughness / wear-ability when compared to premium C630 Nickel Aluminum Bronze valve guides. The softer Manganese guides are easily reamed, and then can be delicately finished with our high quality ball hones. Now, with any battery operated or electric drill you can ream and hone manganese valve guides in less time and in the absence of expensive honing equipment required to properly size tough Nickel Bronze guides.

Tech Bulletin- Superseded Kawasaki® and Suzuki® GSX-R 1000 Valves


KPMI® has Suzuki® valve designs whereas we have selected a proprietary material and heat treatment process that enhances the durability of the valve face to retard valve face recession.  For several years now, this material and heat treatment process was coupled with the KPMI® Black Diamond™ surface treatment.  During the heat treatment stage of manufacturing, the Black Diamond™ coating would come under attack and suffer oxidation and corrosion, leaving a new valve looking used.  Although this combination of processes did achieve a superior stainless one piece valve that would prove to have a highly durable valve face, the valve heads had an unaesthetic appearance (see Figure 1 and 2).  Recently, the KPMI® engineering department completed design reviews for all valves with these issues.  The solution was to move away from the KPMI® Black Diamond™ treatment and introduce the well-recognized and proven KPMI® White Diamond® coating and then post process after heat treatment to leave the head of the valve in a beautiful polished stainless finish (see Figure 1 and 2). We hope you are as excited as we are to provide you with these enhanced valve designs that we will be introducing in a superseding fashion over the next few months.

KPMI® Various Valve Spring Kits for Polaris® XP900/ 1000's Applications


KPMI® has developed a Beehive Spring Kit and 3 Dual-Spring Kits for the 2011-’16 Polaris XP900/1000’s and 2 Dual-Spring Kits and a Beehive Kit for the 2013- ’20 900/1000’s. Being at the forefront of valvetrain development in the side by side market, KPMI® takes pride in being able to development spring kits for the top engine builders around the world. Because of this fact, KPMI® processes valued feedback when offering new designs or modifying existing. Pay close attention to the pressures and retainer material offered. KPMI® recommends heat-treated-steel-retainers for all endurance applications and leaves it up to the most experience engine builder to select titanium retainers when mass reduction is imperative and normal maintenance teardowns are routine after each race. As an additional note, our race customers are using less open pressure for the Turbo’s and only using the Beehive and higher open pressure with experience and knowledge of the treatment of mating parts, clearances and oils. Matching a spring design to given valvetrain mass and cam dynamics is a science and when in doubt you must confer with an experienced builder.

Lightweight Racing Spring Kit and Components for Honda® Various 250- 300's 2011-2019


Since 1939, KPMI® has taken great pride in our ability to design innovative performance improvements for valvetrains. This innovative ability has never been more apparent than with the development of the high tech lightweight racing valve spring kits for 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 for these engines. Working together as a team enabled KPMI® to evolve with a “unified system” approach. In fact, these innovative high performance lightweight valve spring kits, would not only outperform factory parts, but outlive them as well. Each KPMI® spring kit is designed for its specific application, taking into account several critical parameters including; cam profiles, harmonics, 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 for a host of applications.

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.

​​All KPMI® Black Diamond™ Stainless steel valves are impregnated by a special German process to a depth of .002, with a surface build up of .0002. This Black Diamond process improves wear properties, reduces friction, and provides resistance to corrosion and wear that is superior to chrome and nickel electrolysis plating. Each valve is designed using Finite Element Analysis software, and profiles are tested on our computerized flow bench. Black Diamond Valves are lightweight, strong, one piece forgings with profiles that provide excellent flow characteristics.

KPMI® Shim In Tappet Valve Spring Kits and White Diamond® Valves for Various Applications


KPMI® shim in tappet systems locate the adjustment shim in the hardened steel of the tappet body, where it is impervious to wearing (ovalling) and kicking the shim out. By designing the tappet and Titanium or H.T. Steel retainer together as a system, the shim counterbore depth in the tappet has been maximized. This allows for increased insurance against losing the shim even in the event of valvetrain separation during severe operating conditions, over-revs, or extreme boost pressures.


Inconel® is classified as a “Super Alloy”, meaning that it is designed to survive under the most extreme temperatures and pressures where other valves will begin to burn, corrode, or completely fail. This is the material of choice for high output engines running turbos, superchargers, nitromethane, or nitrous.
