Hardened seats and bronze guides. Thing is though the clevo heads seem to last on gas without it anyway. It's cheaper to sort the heads if and when the valves recess.

The standard seats on my heads were stuffed after 18 months of straight gas use even with upper cyclinder lube. I would say its a must.

I must admit it did alot of k's in those 18 months... but still, I would have thought the upper cyclinder lube would have done more.
