Carbon Reeds`

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just replaced the reeds in my 2003 RM 125. It already had carbon reeds installed, by the PO I assume, although one had became to fray. Upon installing my new carbon reeds I noticed they look quite different. The old reeds (left) look much more tightly 'knit' that the new reeds (left).

What does this mean? is it purely cosmetic?

Edit: Apparently I 'can't post a .jpg in this community'

I dunno if this link will work

Hi owainzy03, 

 

The manufacture just used a different weave called  2x2 twill weave. The old reads use a plain weave. I'm not sure why they chose to do this and I would hope it was an improvement.

 

Don't sweat the small stuff. Slap those puppies in and go ride!
