Hi, I have a side project for my TL in which i'm modifying a Cyl. Head to fit different components from stock parts. One thing I cannot find any information on is valve guides. I'm trying to source some Manganese Bronze types, but without knowing the size of the original ones, it makes it hard to figure out what I should be outfitting mine with. Has anyone changed out their guides? Perhaps have a spare around to measure for me? Thanks.

So I manage to answer my own question. 2005-2018 Suzuki King Quad 700/750 models share the same Upper and low Spring retainers, and Valve guides as the TL. This is according to part numbers that match up online between them, from Suzuki. Kibble White carries these parts as performance ones.

(Disclaimer:I am unsure about spring tension or dimension on that kit and it's compatibility with the TL. I have not identified the valve retainer size for this.)
Extra: In case you are looking for performance Valves, Ferrea offers them at the very bottom of this page. Intake/Exaust-Standard/Oversized:

you would only need to upgrade the guides if you are going to titanium valves.
I have yet to see a TL guide with wear on it.

Or Stainless valves, which I am, in effort to prevent galling. Some of us have our reasons and wants for different parts. Nothing wrong with that or citing sources to get them in the event that others are looking for them too. :)
