    Reed Question

    Hey guys,Took my GP1200 into the shop after having some issues with the engine and my mechanic tells me I'm needing new reeds as the petals are chipped, and the seals are cracked. He quoted me $350 for the parts. Just wondering if this is about right, and/or what else I can do. Any thoughts?

    parts at 300 is high even for oem! carbon techs are 140 us but the other cost may be the seals? what does he mean by that? also I thought your year used metal reeds? they typically don't chip they just brake! unless they were swapped already?

    hey,im not a mechanic by any means, but i do know that the reeds in it right now are carbon. he had the cage out and theres definitely chips out of them. also the seals are quite visibly broken. ordering straight from a yamaha dealer, he wants to get the reed valve assembly, the reeds and gasket for the valve assembly. again, im not a mechanic so im not entirely sure what all is involved here but for some broken seals and chipped reeds, is the whole assembly required? I just want my PWC back up and running before I head off to school in September! lol

    if he's getting the oem assemblies it might be closer as oem is 85 each for reed valve assemblies! however he's getting them for less than 65 and u can to at boats.net let me see the cage issue as they rarely all have surface issues
