Reed Valve Replacement?

Recommended Posts

My 2015 XT seems to run leaner each time I go riding.  Although I don't feel lose of power, I may need to replace reed valve.  Have anyone done that yet?  Where did you get the parts and are there any upgrade?

Thanks.

Since it's getting leaner as time goes on I would say the pilot jet is getting clogged. A good carb cleaning should take care of it.

That makes sense.  I'll work on that this week. Thanks.

Bad reeds usually cause a rich condition and poor throttle response.
