    Re: What are there reeds? 650sx

    I would NOT run those. Stuffers look to be made of epoxy maybe, and looks like they will fail very soon...

    Re: What are there reeds? 650sx

    Yeah, it looks like clay and as if it was hand pressed into shape. Appears to be a very dried out epoxy though. Its still hard but I don't like the looks of it and will swap to the factory style.

    Thanks!

    Now looking for SBN44 help

    I almost caught fire a few years ago when my stator wiring rubbed on my shaft. Been collecting parts for a while but finally trying to get it running.

    Stuffers are ghetto bondo or vanilla frosting. They look like the playdoh my nephew uses, and lets sit out for a day. As stated, NOPE. Do the reed petals lie flat on the mating area? You can make them work.

    They do but one had very light damage to an edge. They’d work but I already swapped to stock cages and the boysen reeds.

    Re: What are there reeds? 650sx

    Nice. Reeds are an argumentative performance upgrade. Some swear by them, others laugh. I say they give a difference with many other contributing mods, but nothing worthwhile for a stock motor.

    I can definitely say that I have never seen an aftermarket reed hold up as well as oem. That's just me. (I do run takasagi reeds in just about everything 2 stroke.)
