    Thumbs down M16 reed help and info

    So I bought a non used set on ebay and thought I was getting a good deal. Im not familiar with these reeds for I have Vf3's on my ski along with the other Gpr's I've built. The set I bought didn't come with the manifold and R&D was less than helpful as usual and made me feel like I was wasting his time. My question is how do I run these reeds without the manifold? Is there somewhere I can get a manifold? R&D of course wouldn't sell one seprately. "If you bought the kit new it would have come with it" I was tempted to respond with "If I was buying new your over priced reeds wouldn't be on my ski" Any help would be appreciated!

    The ports on the reeds are bigger than the stock balance plate...

    According to Riva... Who was significantly more helpfull than r&d theres not enough material on the stock plate to open it up... Im at work now so I cant look. Has anyone ran these on an efi gpr? I seemingly own a useless set of expensive reeds. I know I know... I should have bought Vf3's

    Ask us to custom build for your reed spacer needs.

    I will bet they can build you what you need...

    After looking closely at the way the stock manifold fits there is only a tiny bit of aluminum that needs to be massaged to make them fit... The stuffers on the m16 cages have little casting imperfections near the base that need to be cleaned up with a dremel for them to fit... Im going to try it.. So what if it blows up... Its an "extra" ski
