Patrick racing, they sell everything individually or as a kit, if you want to save a few bucks on valve springs look at orient express racing. Way cheaper than everyone else. I know they have successfully ran them with speedstar cams but not sure on other cams so you might want to give them a call with your cam specs to see if their springs will work

For the lifters, try using Melling Part# JB-2011 as your search criteria and also maybe a local parts house can convert that part# to the desired ceramic lifter part#. In case helpful to you, here's a USA seller website with vehicle applications for this beefy lifter: Melling Replacement Hydraulic Lifters JB-2011 - SummitRacing.com (your local prices will be less than this website charges, and the url is only intended to be helpful to you).

The adjustable pushrods and pushrod tubes might still be had from Yamaha accessories although it might require some effort on your part to search, and to keep an eye on the classifieds here as they come up for sale on occasion. Your best bet is to locate a USA Yamaha Dealer with these bits for sale and have them sent-over. Its also possible that members in Germany might have a source within the EU. You might check their continental website and ask around.

You'll probably want stronger valve spring sets also, depending on the cam profile you have in mind. The Speedstar springs will work well. Or see the Service Manual for the dimensions and slant details of the stock valve springs and your local speed shop can probably use that to determine the correct stronger spring, if needed.

Hope this helps, sorry I can't do more for you.

Discontinued but sometimes still found at dealers and eBay.

Minty I'm gonna have to merge your separate threads on this topic into one, you are spreading things out and making it impossible to know what you need and what you have already had answered so please keep everything together on this.

No worries my friend that's why we are here!

You've seen the similar search threads this week by Yodie and Aussiecob? Might help a bit.
