I saw it get wiggled, maybe it was 1/2 inch total travel, but either way it wasnt a click click wiggle, it was some pretty bad movement. I was pretty pissed off until he said warranty. Then i got excited cause i get to spend my money on suspension

I used Kimball White guides, I don't think I spelled it right though.

Got it thru the Ducshop cheaper than OEM

I doubt they would by them, but the may cover the labor.

Re: Valve guides for DS1000 motor

Kui,

Mine were just replaced by BH Ducati, under warranty, using a machine shop somewhere in N. California. I'd check with them on who manufactured the guides. My understanding is that they are far better than stock, different material, etc. I have an 08 s2r 1K, btw, so I don't think the stock guides are up to snuff yet...

The new guides have been much better than the old ones .
I would let ducati pay for them at this time and they will be adjusting those valves after they cut the seats.
If the newest ones wear out later on (I would have them checked again before warranty is up) maybe at that time go with the kibblewhites.
