If you are using the umbrella type valve guide seals this could be your cause. Usually anything over about 520 or so will have an interference with them.

Generally , your cause will come from valve float , coil bind , not enough spring pressure , or the most common thing if everything else is right ...... cheap springs . With the cam profiles that are run in today's race engine , good spring's are very important ! Regardless of what brand spring you run , they should be checked after every race !! It only takes one week spring to make a big mess !
