    Is this Bad?

    I got lucky and found the missing piece Looks like the petal frayed and chipped, and caused my poor performance and backfire, which blew that petal right out of there

    Pretty normal for a gpr. Check that old cage. The rubber where the petal sits might be burnt too.

    Fercho will have another customer, I won't be putting the stock cages back in. Not after all that work. Also removing oil pump and going pre-mix and going to F/A. I don't want to fight that stock air box again

    The main reason for the pedles to have this kind of damage is when people rev the engine and just kill it. You should let your engine rev down BEFORE killing it.

    Most people just rev and kill when there clearing water after a ride. It will happen to the carbon reeds also if you do it with them.
