    These toxic reeds came with 2 different reed stop spacers. 1 for stock/limited and 1 for modified. Did the Boyesen come with spacers or instructions? Got a pic?

    I used the Toxic reeds back in 95 on my SL750. I liked them with the reed cage spacers I put on at the same time. I have the Boyesen RAD Valves on my SLX780. One of my favorite mods.

    Was toxic a national chain? I had a store near me that was called toxic racing. I ran those reeds too. . . until i threw a rod.

    Team Toxic was located in Jersey. They sold reeds among other pwc parts back in the day. I think their reeds are still made. It was probably the same place addicted. They were not national.

    SL, have you ever used the V Force II reeds? I'm curious to see how they compare to the Boyesen RAD valves. Wondering if they're worth the extra $$$. Thanks

    I had carbon tech reeds on stock cages and went to RAD valves honestly not a noticable differance? maybe cause Carbon techs are good and It was only a 650? Z
