I am trying to recondition an M18 head and require new valves. Although they are available from Japan, Suzuki Australia have never stocked or ordered valves for the M18. And they are expensive.

I have tried a number of aftermarket places including Precision and Veale Auto Parts but no one has a listing for them.

Does anyone know where I can get valves for the M18, or if they are the same size as valves from another motor?

Hey mate try Torq project. They are in Singapore and have built some wild m series motors, they may be able to help you out with some valves (I only got in contact through Facebook).

If not a local engine builder should be able to match something up for you?

Thanks Southy.

The engine builder has apparently tried matching them but cant find anything suitable so far.

I will try searching Facebook for Torq Project, but do you have any contact details for them?

$1,000.00 for a set of inlet and exhaust ex Japan.

Thanks Southy, I managed to get hold of Torq Project and they have a set for $450.00 plus freight.

No worries man..
I was planning to get a few things from them previously but things changed.

Suzuki price is a bit rediculous!

Might be worth trying these guys out if you haven't already done the deal.
