    There are no flapper valves in my airbox. Seems a previous owner chucked them out. Bike runs OK without them. Perhaps they're just an emission...

    Looks like the initial failure was the head falling off one of the inlet valves. Possibly a flaw in the head-stem joint. With the valve missing,...
