    What reed spacer if using 1300 reeds on 1200?

    I'm running 1300 reeds on my XLT1200, I see a few recommending that I use a spacer plate, to move them away from the turbulence. What spacer do you guys recommend? A second OE one perhaps?

    I've tried the spacer on a couple of 1390's and cannot say it helped any noticeable amount. It is costly, as you have to get special longer bolts and extra gaskets. Truly do not think its worth it on a 1200, may even cost a bit of low end due to the larger volume in the crankcase.
