are these reeds bad?

Recommended Posts

ok guys i have a 05 yz85 that has a bad sputter with anything over 1/4 throttle. i have tried plugs. stator flywheel. head gaskets, comp test..... i pulled the reeds to check them and while they dont seem to be cracked to chipped if you hold them up to the light you can see light through them. I am reading some say this is normal and some say its bad. whats your thought.

Can't see well by your pic but it you can see light passing thru any gaps

(reed doesn't close flush to the cage or edges chipped) yes they need replacing.

 

If not chipped, remove and install them flipped facing the other way to see

if they seal better, might get a bit of extra life out of them before needing new one.
