02 Foreman 450s New valves

If your gonna replace your intake valve and exhaust valve what els do you have to change or what els is recommended to change! I was gonna change everything that goes with the valves like the seal, spring, retainer, rocker arms ect. Or do you have to change cam,push rods,ect?

it probably would be best to take head to a reputable shop to have head and valve job done. if you have never done it and do not have the equipment to do it i do not recommend trying it.

Harig is dead on. Also, if you are replacing valves why? A valve job reface's the valve and the seat to insure proper sealing. So you're old valves may live again. If they are heavy worn I would replace valve guilds, the exhaust guild in an air cooled engine takes a beating.
