    Boysen Reeds vs. Factory reeds

    Hey, I have a kawasaki zxi1100, and I noticed a gap on 1 side of one of my cages of reeds, so I am going to get a new set. I was reading that the aftermarket dont hold up as well. But I can get the aftermarket much faster so I am debating on buying the boysens instead. My question is, should I really be concerned with the boysens snapping or not holding up as well as the Factory?

    The factory reeds are the best if you dont want to worry about failers. The aftermarket ones perform better but they tend to fail. My advise is go for the oem reeds and add r&d reed stuffers. Wich i have a set for $60shipped.
