    04 valves read to break?

    Guys have a look at the pictures and let me know what you think? All opinions welcome. These valves are in one of my conversion ski and are the dreaded 04-05 valves. I have the engine out of the ski and need confirmation that these are about to snap.
    Thank you.

    I would change them. Mine looked better than that and let go 1 hour into mudbug a few years back. Destroyed the whole motor.

    Mine looked better than those 10x and had them replaced. Cheaper than a motor
