Thanks. I sent a message to tpusa. I shall see what I get.
I like to ride and I like to think that if I get a pro to do it it will last longer. I think I caused the problem by running the bike on premium which caused carbon build up and with the valve adjustment carbon broke loose and reduced compression. Upon removing the head we found the valves were due for a refresh. The moral for me is to ride by the book. I might have got another 20,000 miles out of the valves.
