if they are stainless, i'm pretty sure yes. but you DO NOT lap titanium valves, it will remove the coating and ruin the valves..

It really depends on who you talk to... I know a lot of people who laps Ti valves with no issues. I'm sure 1 ou of 100 people may have had a problem but it was probably the person doing the lapping.

i've always been told to not lap tie valves. it messes up the coatin that is on them and greatly shortens the life of the valves..

Under NO circumstances do you ever lap a Ti valve. The only reason anyone uses lapping compound any more is if there are stainless valves being used and you want to see where your seat is contacting the valve.

We use a SERDI to do all of our valve work, so there is no need for valve lapping.
