WTF is this stuff made of gold?

Working on the spare heads today. Thinking, hmm, these exhaust valves look just a tad speckly on the edges, wonder how much for all new....

Boinnng! Sticker shock!

OK lightly relapping these ones fer sher. But anyways, does anyone know a cross reference for Manley or any other valve that isn't 40 bucks a pop?

Sounds shitty, but when we rebuilt the head of a 2008 ducati 1098 the intake valves were $390 a piece..they were sodium filled..woo

They are nitrile or something to stop the carbon fouling.

Yep, quick lapping did the trick.
