Any gains to be had using V-force reeds over stock reeds?some people say they work some say stock is better??With twin pipes they should give you some what of a gain. :dunno:

I've never seen anything that reeds didnt work in, it hard to feel a seat of the pants difference with them on the firecats, but they work.

I do know this. They will make your sled sometimes not start with out holding the throttle open just a little when engine is warm. I felt no gains and was concerned about how long the reed petals last because when on a riding trip you wont be going to the store and buying them over the counter. I have read that they will not last near as long as the stocker. If you only get a couple of horses is it worth it?? The firecat is the only machine that I know that they dont work that well in. Cats disign is hard to beat on this one just like the exhaust system IMO.
PS on my banshees they are worth it because they make a noticable improvement.

if you already have them from say your ZR900 and they are practically new...would you throw them your BMP F8? Think I'll notice a difference on it over the OE cages?
