I have a quick question, slightly off topic but I didn't want to start a whole new thread. Does engine braking (without a slipper clutch) harm the engine at all? I didn't think it would, but a friend claims that it destroys the valves, and will cause backfire to get really bad. I'm not sure on this, any validity? I like engine braking just to add to slowing down with the brakes, keeps from wearing brakes down to much.

I just want to make sure I don't destroy the engine, or at least make sure I know what to check for mantinence.
