    Reed spacers? Any performance gain?

    I've seen reed spacers listed on Ebay. What is the advantage? Would you use them with V force reeds? Just wondering if I need these or not. Thanks

    The spacers are supposed to remove the reed petals from the crank turbulence making them last longer and perform better! I have a set going into mine! they were stock on the 780's Z

    Makes me wish I needed another set, you can't even get the hardware or material for 40 bucks.

    Either Kawi 650 or 750 reeds and cages used to fit the Fuji 650/750/780/785 cases. Man I am really digging into my memory for this but I recall them being the same. Just a little tidbit someone might want to investigate further

    I don't think they're needed on the domestic motors...I ran a set of V-Force 2's for several hundred hours and they were in near perfect shape when I pulled them out...

    kawi 650 is way off. they are smaller, and are only 4-bolt mounting.
    kawi 750 are similar, but the bolt holes don't line up.

    Then maybe just the reeds themselves fit both cages. I remember something to do with the reed area that are the same.

    In certain instances, the reed spacers are also used to pull the reeds out, away from the boost port path.
