    install the stuffers or no

    well with the carbon tech reeds iv been wondering on installing the plastic blocks or keeping them out ,

    in my mind i think it would be better with em for more with them installed but then i dont know what to think if its spinning at 6000+ rpms and there opening and closeing at 111 times per second

    any body wanna shed some light on this ?

    is it gonna be a tuneing issue with out em ?

    Yes, you want the stuffers in. They help to increase air/fuel velocity through the reeds and help to take up some intake track volume. Ditch the black rubber pads though, like Doug said.

    6000 RPM / 60 seconds = 100 rev per second

    111 Rev per second = 6,660RPM

    Every revolution is a complete cycle on a 2-stroke, per cylinder, right?

    3 cyl so you divide 6000 by three then by 60?
    but like I say! When it comes to math there are three kinds of people! those who are good at math and those who aren't

    rpms

    rpms aren't figured based on how many cylinders you have but on crankshaft revolutions,a 2 cyl a 3 cyl still have one crankshaft,2 or 3 only makes a difference for a tach to determine how many firings it sees and how many of those contribute to a revolution

    Think of it as three single cylinder engines in a line. Each one is turning over at the same revolutions per second. The intake reeds open and close just for that single cylinder, and don't care what the other cylinders are doing.

    The three cylinders happen to be connected to the same crank shaft and power the same drive shaft, but essentially they operate as separate engines.
