    I'm excited about installing my new VF3s,and holding them side by side i can see there's 4 petals to 2 for more velocity and strong flexible carbon stoppers as to the oem stiff metal, can anyone else elaborate more on this?, i,m curious, thanks

    WOW!!! this is certainly new information! thanks buddy!

    what gaskets are you using?

    the pedals are CF... the cages are plastic...

    It`s all about the holeshot!
    2 strokes LOVE sawdust...

    moto tech talk

    getting off the phone with tech over there he,s says if everything is installed correctly, i should get 5-7 more horsepower and 150 -200 more RPMs, Hmm...the gasket is a yamaha with additional holes punched in , i think from a carborator ski,i'm not sure, have to ask Rich(wfo)

    Make sure you pressure test after you install the reeds. They are somewhat tricky to get to seal correctly. Don't want to have a leak.... BOOM!!!

    one OEM gasket and the cometic gaskets
    use the paper gaskets supplied...

    with the HC head, and the VF`3, the added punch and rpms will allow you to run a taller prop...

    there are quite a few good threads pertaining to the installation of the VF`s... start with these...

    keep the sawdust out of the engine!!!

    OH BTW, your welcome Dave!

    One of my customers had a 1200 GPR motor dynoed over in Canada, stock setup was a Dominator manifold, Novi 48's, and M-16's. Switched over to the VF 3 reeds, Powderlites spacer, and Novi 48's, a big increase in air flow. !!!!
