    M16 vs Vforce and boring question

    Between these two wich is best? I've ran with the v-force reeds and feel fast acceleration but know on my recent RX i got a hand on a set of R&D M16 reeds. What can I spect in comparison.

    I am planing on building my RX (finally) Not for racing as I got some used parts from friends.
    One of those parts were a set of un used Cylinders with ProX pistons (bore to .40mm )over the standard size if im not wrong. Suposed to be the second size in overboring. My question is in that size do I have to modify the Rave valves?

    Thanks for reading.

    Anything over the first bore size of .020" or .5mm

    there's a reason the m16 setup didn't sell well and is now discontinued.

    I ran the rinaldi reeds but with the new motor I'm going to run the Ski-Doo snowmoblie MXZ 800 reeds. Plus I run the miller spacer with them.

    Thanks Kecheme. Now I have to find a shop ho could do that job.

    Zumina : Did you know why they didn't sell much? Poor performance gain? Would response better with OEM ones?

    Schmid: Wich ones are those? they are aftermarket or come OEM with the snowmobile.

    Don't want a jet in the water but I give a lot about throtle response and acceleration . You never know when I can give a scare to some factory 4-stroke just until it boosts

    Thanks to all.

    on the Yamaha side the M16s had a problem of breaking a lot

    "I ran the rinaldi reeds" - these are good, I ran these seadoo reeds on my Yamaha

    Run the rinaldi reeds with the miller spacers ,if using Stock Carbys fill the stock intakes in the cavity area with epoxy resin and then have them machined back the same thickness the miller spacers are 10 or 12 mm cant remember. This will give you better bottom and mid range. Using This set up the reeds dont chip or break.

    OEM on the snowmobile. They look just like the rinaldi reeds. My miller spacers are only 8mm thick and I run a R & D intake.

    I run the vforce with the novi/deans team space and manifold and never had a problem.

    Good info here. Thanks a lot. For now I think won't be able to afford buying the rinaldi since I got the M16 for a trade but How can i got a set just in case? also these miller spacers where do i found them? Hope that when I start bulding up can post some pictures if the progres made.

    Waiting on some extra $$ to continue.

    Enjoy the weekend.
