<font color='#F52887'>Apart from the ones using the Titanium first stage, are the rest (R190, 380 etc) able to be made suitable for use with rich nitrox mixes up to oxygen? If so what needs to be done and would it be expensive?

This is an "urban myth".  I have a number of S'Pro and Apeks regs which I use on 100% O2. There is no special preparation necessary. I just use them straight out of the box.

I've even got service kits which say "NOT O2 CLEAN" on them which I happily use on my O2 regs.

Manufacturers won't condone this practice however.

<font color='#F52887'>next year I want a reg to use with predominately 80%, My girlfriend uses my old S'pro Mk20/S600 so as you say that this would be OK to use, all I would have to do is make sure it is O2 clean? I dont know if I can be out the extra money when I have this reg in the cupboard. When I will be using 80% she wont be diving so that would be OK as far as I am reading this. and also, she can use my Mk16/R380 on her pony when I am not using it on my lean mix sideslung.
