Version 3 - now re-designed to improve sealing at low and mid-range openings while maintaining excellent top end flow.
Made from very high grade CNC billet aluminium that is renowned for its toughness at extreme high temperatures.
The original and best after-market solution. Beware cheap imitations that are appearing. Material, profiles and coatings may not be the same.
The design incorporates the power-valve 'pin' that is much larger and made as part of the centre blade meaning that it is impossible for the pin to fall into the cylinder, treated with a hard, self lubricating, ultra low friction coating.
Superior life expectancy and operation.
NOTE: Colour of this product can vary due to small variations (within specification) of the compounds present in the alloy. The anodising process reacts with the surface to produce the final colour. All materials used are certified to the same specification. Variation in colour is not a fault, performance is not affected.
In some of our tests we monitored a 6hp increase with good mid-range stability on a standard motor. Results may vary depending on your
state of tune and condition of current valves & ports etc.
Uses the original spring.
See http://www.rgv250.co.uk/index.html/_/articles/power-valves-r24 for further set up info.
The price here is for a 250cc set of 4 valves, 4 caps and 6 screws.

Bit the bullet after a pin broke on the standared one. They are alot better than standared also cheeper than a new top end. Im not sure what sort of gains you get on a standared engine,but all I have done is pipes air fillter small bit of top end work and was on dyno at 66bhp
I rang tuning works for a quote and information on some power valve blades for a VJ21 RGV engine. Extremely knowledgeable and I learned something! Cannot recommend them enough, and will certainly be using them for any of my RG and RGV needs.
My old powervalves were worn so I fitted solid, one piece items. Bike was horrible to ride, no good up hills in tight corners, and impossible in traffic. Purchased some cougar red items, and in combination with arrow exhausts and af1 air filter it was dynoed at 66.46 hp. All low rev issues are gone, all tight, steep hill corner issues are gone, all traffic issues are gone. The cougar red valves picked up an extra 3 hp over the solid ones. The bike (1997 RS250) is beautiful to ride and the power is brutal for a 250 2 stroke, I couldn't be happier.
