I've got a CB450 donor engine in need of head repairs. I don't want to put junk parts into it, but I also don't want to throw money away. I found these valves on ebay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intake-Valve-for-Honda-CB-450-500-CL-450-14711-292-000/352224903361?hash=item52023d80c1:g:6l0AAOSwAaJaIrsT

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Exhaust-Valve-for-Honda-CB-450-500-CL-450-14721-292-010/391938368318?hash=item5b4158e33e:g:KBsAAOSwfVhaIsop

They are sold from a german place called Getor: https://www.getor.de/

Intakes are $35 and exhaust are $40 delivered. They sell other valves branded as vesrah, but these don't seem to be branded that way. They say oem quality from Japanese production. I'm not really interested in the cost of the 5mm valve conversion stuff. Any thoughts?

I agree. What valves are people using in the 450? I'm seeing the KPMI 5mm stuff, and NOS intake valves. Other than that it seems like a bunch of questionable sources. Am I missing something?

I got some stainless valves from a seller on eBay (Schumann ?) that seem good. They all miced within a thou anyway. Haven't used them yet. They are a little $ compared to pattern valves that are probably fine with a little work.
