Inlet valves length??

Hi, after a cct failure i an i search of inlet valves.
I can order Honda OEM ones but they are pretty expensive for me and i am broke at the moment, plus if i irder them i will have to wait 2-3 weeks for them to arrive.
A vtr owner told me he had used car valves on his bike, but he cannot recall from what car the valves fit. He just went to a car parts shop with the old valves and they gave him car valves that were the same.
I will do the same, but as my valves are both bent i canot measure the length, and i do not wat to open the other head just to measere the good valves, cause i will have to replace the head gasket too.


So, do anyone have the inlet valves dimentions?

This does not sound like a good option to me. There are way to many variables to be taken into account to find an automobile valve to replace your Hawk's.

Another option is to find a second-hand complete front cylinder head from a breakers and transplant that on.

Are you also going to replace the OEM tensioners for manual CTTs?

I have been searching for second hand ones but no succes
I am in Bulgaria and here the market is not so big. I searched ebay but there are NO, absoutely no offers for VTR valves. No offers for front cynder heads too

I have just changed the oil and the battery of my Hawk an i got no spre money for new valves, cause i will buy a new head gasket(30 EUR) and valve seals (20 EURO).
Car valves will be 5-10EURO each which is pretty good price.

Another question - are the inlet and exhaust valves the same length?
I can measure my exhaust valves, they are not bent.


I will be using manual CCTs, i even have modified OEM ones and just would be installing them when the cct failure happened, what a bad luck
