1983 GL1100 intake valve

Post by whitey818 »



While putting carbs back on I dropped a small screw into the intake port and didn't catch it before turning the engine over :o Got the head off and piston is good but the valve not so much. I am only finding replacement valves for pre 1983 and saw that the collets are different.
Does anyone know if I can just get an earlier valve with the correct collets for it, lap it in and be good? While doing this repair going to go ahead and replace both head gaskets and a quick lap on rest of the valves and replace the valve seals.
Been a while since I rode the ole girl and getting kinda excited to get back up and going :D
Appriciate any help and knowledge given!!

Thank you good sir, may have to give them a try. Still researching on using the pre 83 valve, seems the only difference is the stem area for the collet and the collet. All other part numbers are same.
