    Tornado Intake Valve - Positions

    The Tornado has a Intake Valve (we know it as "airbox flapper") but Intake Valve is the OEM part manual name.

    Some one could send me a picture or indication of how closed is when its closed, and how opened is when it should be opened?

    I see the Intake Valve and Exhaust Valve are operated by the same actuator ("solenoid") so I can clearly see the Exhaust Valve being closed for Idle, and fully opened when hit the gas.

    Thanks and Regards!

    closed is closing the airbox, (so it breath on the flapper holes)
    and
    open is almost parallel pointinb both flappers up

    my flapper was out of range, so i "resynched it".

    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 control thing.
