    66v reed petals - what are people buying?

    Doing carbs on a 01 xlt with a 100hrs on it. Pulled the reed cages out while I had it apart - one set of petals is not sealing. Just wondering what people are running - stock yamaha or ? Ski is 100% stock - dont need vf3 or anything like that.

    Thanks!

    It appears they are lasting longer than the 12r cages.

    It wouldn't surprise me, if you look under a bright light and a magnifying-lope, that you will see the rubber sealing surface is destroyed anyway.

    You can get a set of 3 cages with low hour pedals in the classifieds for cheap. I have full sets for 50.00 and Jim is selling some too.

    im tearing into my carbs now and am going to check my reeds. dno what condition they are in. but im not stock at all but dnt have much money at all. wfo you suggested 1300 reeds. i take it id have to get the cages also. would there be any difference in performance with them or should i just use 1200 oem ones just incase mine are in bad shape.

    When I say cages, I mean with petals too.
    I upgrade all the 1200s I work on to OEM 1300 cages.

    yea i understand that wfo. about the cages and the reeds. i understand they are lasting longer which is good but will i notice any performance from them like vf3 you get like 150 rpm's. you think the 1300's will yield anything extra over stock 1200's.
