Better to have extra parts or bolts.. find where they belong or spares.

The first time I changed my oil I had a fender bolt extra. Looked for a half hour where it went. The next time I changed oil, I finally found up behind the headlights where my "spare" lived.

Re disassembly sucks the big one for sure.. I put 32 valve springs upside down in my zx9r head. Still need to flip them all over.

I have a craftsman compressor from the 80s for v8 engines that I made a motorcycle shim/bucket adapter. Kawasaki has tight coils on one end. No idea on yamaha yet.. only 3 years old so far!

Yes, it holds the valve face then clamps the spring retainer and the bit I machined has a tube with a window to remove the two retainers off the stem. I'll look for it and get a pic. With head on you need compressed air or rope.

16 valves. Inner/outer is normal on high compression/rev engines. R6 same way.
