Big thanks to Piston Wash
...for overnighting those reeds out to us. Joe's ski is running great. We would not have gotten it back together this week without your assistance.
Joe has been waiting for WEEKS for some aftermarket reeds, and didn't order any stock ones.
You were a life saver!!!

Stock reeds. Less than 25 hours. I'll post some pics later of the burnt reeds. It doesn't look like much, but the most dramatic part, is one petal got so hot that it was pulled away from the cage. it wasn't that terrible from the top. He was losing throttle response, and a few R's up top. With an upcoming 6 hour race we needed to at least put a fresh set in.

Various pics of the offending reed petals. I just took pics of one cage. All three showed various amounts of damage.
I think it has been repeatedly noted about a few things that cause this:
Mixture too rich, 8000rpms for extended periods, rough water operation, reed cages too close to crank, etc...
We've installed a spacer on the new set, and will track progress after the Hahn 300 race.
