I'm wondering if you are confusing the air valve butterflies that are above the secondary plate with the secondary plate. You shouldn't be able to see the secondaries unless the air valve is opened. If you are seeing the secondary air valve butterflies only partially open, that is normal. Much like a Holley, it won't open fully unless under load. If you manually hold the air valve open so you can see the secondaries, you can open the throttle fully to see if they are operating correctly(engine off,of course). It is highly unlikely that the secondaries are only opening the little amount you are seeing, it would have been caught at the factory. I suspect you are perceiving the air valve as the secondaries.
