today i found.....
fooling around in the shop with my 66e motored superjet today
when i pulled out the m16 reed valves the reeds are seperating from themself.
literally the fiberglass has seperated not just chipped
like the epoxy it was made with ?
i always read rumors people had probs w m16 but mine never failed
ski was still running good
good thing its cold out

life expectancy is 45 hours spaced on the M-16's. Better to go francos, or if you want to reach deeper in ya pockets, there are the top shelf brands.
the performance they give generally bleeds off after 30 hours
generally, some are extraordinary.

does anyone know what type of life ecpectency v force reeds have for efi 1300? have used older style v force for kaw 750s and they too chip off at the tips pretty fast. im a little hesitant about purchasing these. do they really make big improv on ski for the price and are spacers recommended?
