Power valves and couplers question
I have a stock 03 1300r. I just bought some low hour updated power valves to replace my old ones. When I got them in the mail, all but one is damaged. I don't feel they should be used but I am not an expert so I will ask the pros here. Can I used uses these pv's?
This one looks like it has some grinding on it, i guess to try and fix the damage?
Also are these couplers complete? if not what is missing.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

Those power valves look like they came out of a big bore cylinder. you would be better off with stock ones than them.
I don't like the wave eater couplers as they wear the shafts and you end up with more play in the couplers.

I would think that damage should not make a difference. It's near impossible to get the valves to all open together anyway.
I highly recommend the R & D replacement valves - I've broken (3) OEM before I switched over.

I don't think I would use those valves, you don't know how true they are after being hit, and what potential weakness is now in the shaft. Couplers, I have seen the waveater couplers roll pins wear grooves in the shaft causing more play. All the contact is on the small diameter pin against the shaft. I like to take the stock shafts and close up the slots a tiny bit, then the stock couplers with their wide and long big surface area fit tight and don't have any play.
