    Question VF3 reeds not compatible with GPRs???

    I was doing some research on VF3 reeds and came across this>>> (xxx).hotproductsusa.com/PDFs/Hot_Products_2008_Catalog_Intake.pdf
    It states VF3s do not work with PV cylinders. Is this why they need to be modded for them to fit properly? Or am I looking at the wrong reeds thanks for any input.
    I have my ski apart right now and thinking about installing some VF3s to go along with ported cylinders and gas valves and Riva heads and 3degree keyway

    They do work, but you have to use a custom spacer/adapter plate.

    Contact WFO on this forum. I believe he sells them.

    The VF3 reeds work very good on the GPR's. They are fitted to a custom 3/8" spacer to accept the cages and adapt to our ski's.

    you will have to buy the whole kit... comes with reed cages, spacer, bolts, and gaskets... and yes I sell them

    you are probably looking at VFIIIs for 65u motor

    we use a VFIII from a SkiDoo and modify to fit the GPR

    bought mine from WFO. great guy at a great price. also ask him for some new gaskets. you might have to trace and cut the gasket to fit.

    While talking about reeds, is there a difference between vf2's and vf3's?

    the IIs are a little more fragile and little cheaper
