Rebuilding your VF3 reed cages
During my crank snap, I had the opportunity to rebuild my cages.
It's easy and quick to do.
I bought my reeds from Moto Tassinari directly at www.mototassinari.com
You will need 1 kit for each cage... or if you are just replacing one reed petal, there are 4 in each pack.
The instructions and tools come with the reeds. It's a straight forward process, and takes about 10 mins per cage.
I used a 4.3mm at the tip of the screwdriver to pop the side locks (or retainer bar) as mt calls them.
Screwdriver also works well to pop the outer blades off.
Here are the instructions. They are also on the MT site.

... oh, when re-installing the side retaining bars, you have to wiggle and play with them a bit to line them up to the slots. Take your time. They go right in.
