    Are TDR Reeds any good?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...MEWA:IT&ih=025

    Im assuming from the auction they are 3 pedal type for my 93 650 turned 94 750. Although the pic looks kinda odd.

    Are these reeds any good? My reeds are quite old, and getting iffy.

    Im confused how this helps me.

    Are V-Force reeds very good? Should i be getting those? $80 is getting to be more than i want to spend.

    Speed is a question of money....If you have to ask it cost to much...80.00 (V-force) is a bargin compared to the 250.00 price tag they carry new, I have never used TDR but their carbon fiber try them out, you might be suprised........

    Those are said to be for modified motors only. I don't think yours is gonna be modded, is it?

    As for TDR, they are a reputable company. However, someone else asked about these reeds in another post, and someone chimed in saying they owned a set and they chipped oinly after 5 hrs.

    There are better choices IMO. $80 is the starting price for new performance reeds.

    Fast Banshee pricing is off for V Force reeds, unless you're talking a 2 cylinder.

    Here's an idea how they run for 3 cyls:

    $80 Boyesen Power reeds (good)
    $120 Boyesen dual stage Pro reeds (better)
    $150 Carbon Tech reeds (highly recommended)
    $350 V Force II reeds (I recommend)
    $400 Boyesen Rad valves (very good, but not as good as V F IMO)

    $350 for reeds huh?

    Yea, i dont think my lil old 750 that probably isnt going to run is worth that...

    If you want performance, you got to pay for it. Often guys sell these in the classifieds for much cheaper, but they are used.

    Randy from Watcon had some PRO reeds for $80 on Ebay a while back that would've worked for you real nice. Maybe he didn't sell them? May want to look into it.

    He's gone for races right now though, so he's prob not gonna be too speedy on responding to PM or Email.

    Im not really looking for extreme performance, how much is really gained from good reeds? I just want a reliable good running ski that does 50.

    I dont need anything crazy, mainly i want reliability. My current reeds are starting to get chipped on the edges and they dont seal fully, theyre bent up a bit. Im assuming this is bad.

    Yes it's bad.

    Get the Boyesen power reeds, they're like stock, only better.

    Reeds can add a bit to an engine with quicker response and a little better top end too.
