KPMI® 2014 Product Overview



Kibblewhite HD® Evolution™ OEM Styl Seals & Tools Kit

Suzuki® Hayabusa™ Lightweight Racing Valve Spring Kit

  • KPMI® is proud to introduce one of the most unique retainers we have ever designed. The Suzuki® Hayabusa™ is a technical marvel that changed the game for the sport bike world, and we at KPMI® put in an equal technical effort to make a part worthy of such a bike. This retainer is thoroughly a product of modern engineering. KPMI® engineers spent nearly a year studying materials, and surface treatments to find the ideal balance of hardness, toughness, wear resistance, and strength. They spent countless hours refining the design with finite element analysis and the results are impressive. The new KPMI® retainer is within 1.5 grams of the O.E.M. aluminum retainer, while being 55% harder!

  • The design tackled several goals besides just reducing mass. Our engineers addressed the shim counterbore wear, and keeper pull-through issues of the O.E.M. aluminum retainer, with our super hardenable alloy and Posi-Loc feature. This new retainer also features spring shoulders that were designed to mate with the O.E.M. springs. This allows our retainer be used as a direct O.E.M. replacement, or with KPMI’s Super-Clean Chrome Silicon springs for higher performance applications. This really is the ultimate retainer for the ultimate sport bike.

  • Our “Engine Builders” line of Wrist Pin Bushings are made from SAE660 bearing bronze. These bushings are made to exact tolerances and will meet or exceed fitment and wear ability of all other replacement bushings available. This new line of Engine Builder Wrist Pin Bushing are sold individually, and are also available in a +.002” oversize outside diameter.

Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam™ 88-103 Fat Stem Valve

  • Some later model Harley Twin Cam™ heads using 7.0mm valves may have a tendency to crack in the port end of the valve guide boss. This has been noticed on heads with the number 332 embossed on the cylinder heads.
  • KPMI® is now producing Black Diamond™ Valves with +.005” oversize stems for engine builders who need to reestablish correct valve stem to guide clearance, but do want to take a chance on creating a crack, or worsening an existing crack by changing valve guides in these heads.
  • The valve guides must be reamed/honed to set the correct clearance, and then a valve job should be performed to insure proper valve sealing.
  • The oversize portion of the stem does not extend into the keeper groove area, so the OEM keepers may be used.

Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam™ 88-103 Wrist Pin Bushing

  • Designed and manufactured by KPMI® to original OEM dimensions with Kibblewhite® Quality and Precision. Wrist pin bushings need the correct combination of characteristics to perform properly in their high load environment. These bushings have excellent anti friction qualities, as well as good hardness, and resistance to wear and deformation under high loads. KPMI® wrist pin bushings are held to tight dimensional tolerances, offer excellent machinability, so the optimum surface finish may be obtained, and have a tapered lead on each end to ease installation. These wrist pins will meet or exceed fitment and wearability of all other replacement style bushings available.
