    I've seen that happen to a couple singles, have any more details (milage, etc)?

    Saw one that the valve stem punched through the piston after the valve head broke off. That one just left the head in the piston :eek3:

    The board I found it on simply said something along the lines of "thats what happens when you ride at redline."

    Piston collision perhaps?

    Desmo valve gear is sexy and all, but I do love the whine of my gear driven cams (actuating more normal valvetrain parts)

    and mine runs without destroying the top end.

    Yeah looks like the piston punched the valve because valve spring couldnt pull the valve up fast enough or perhaps valve jammed due to fricition/heat

    I ride the redline all the time at track without a problem.

    remember that experement this one magazine did on ZX6R? engine ran and the red line for hours and no damage done.

    point is Jap engines are > _____

    Huh I didnt know.

    But not all Ducati engines use desmodromic valvetrain, I have seen a ducati head that used springs. Not the typical valve spring but S type springs soemthing.
