65 U and V Force Reeds... To space or not?
I know the spacer makes the reeds live longer, but I have no problem inspecting/replacing them often.
Do I really need the spacer or not?

I have a Riva reed spacer still in the packaging,(#RY128m-S) but minus the bolts,which were used for something else, but with the gaskets. If you are interested let me know.

What is your take on this Pistonwash?

I believe they are are worthwhile. Keeping the reeds away from the turbulence should not only extend the lifespan but ensure better operation.

I didn't space mine. The GP goes out on its maiden run tomorrow with the VF2's. I haven't ever hear of problems with the GP like the GPR had without the spacer.
I guess time will tell

I didn't notice a big gain from V-Force 2's on my GP1200. The gains were subtle and not as noticeable as they were on the GPR. I do not have a reed spacer on the GP1200

I am riding tomorrow with a seadoo.netter. Will post my thoughts on the reeds.
