Would you replace this reed valve?

Recommended Posts

I pulled out my reed valve while jetting and cleaning out my carb on my 2005 300exc, and I'm not sure if it's worth the $60 to replace it. The top profile looks pretty dinged, but the side profile looks clean. Keep in mind that the inner flap has windows cut in it and acts more like a gasket. 


The bike runs rich and bogs before the power band, which can be a symptom of a bad reed valve (so I've heard), but I don't necessarily think this reed is causing that.


If I replace it, I was going to order the OEM Part# 54730052000 from Rocky Mountain ATV at $60, unless someone has a better suggestion for an aftermarket reed.


What do you think, would you replace it?
