What bike do you have? That is not entirley true about the life of the motor. If you keep up on regular matinance on the bike you shouldnt have any problems.

It shoudltn affect you at all. Do you mean parts wearing out normally, or they wear out with ur right hand? Now you can wear your motor out VERY fast if you put reeds in that allow over rev. Reeds shouldnt affect you its how you use the bike. What reeds did you have in mind?

If you want a boost id look into a pipe and silencer, that would make your motor last as long as if you left it stock. you would get more power with a good exhuast then you would with a set of reeds. Now what you could do for a bit more power if you still want reeds is look into a Vforce set of reeds or a rad valve. If you dont want any of those look into a stock cage set of high quality reeds. I use the FMF torque reeds and they do me just fine ,but Im lookin for a rad valve to pickup the top end alot.

I dont think your short fmf has a spark arrestor and no, they dont add power. Those are used for areas that require them to stop sparks from exiting the pipe to prevent fires. If anything they take away power. could you put up the year of your bike. The reeds will help you, and they will make that pipe work better. An engine is essentially an air pump. The better air goes out, the better you have to make air come in.

Yea no problem. I dont know about the shock. Thanks to the year there is a part that will increase your power a bit. Heres the link.

http://www.rockymountainatv.com/typeDetail.do?navTitle=Intake%2FFuel&allVehParts=true&webCatId=16&webTypeId=80&navType=type

that site will give you options for reeds and I recomend the Air power blades. That will snap open alot faster and flow alot more air into your engine which means more power! The Vforce reeds are ment for racing but you can do what you want with them. If you wanted alot more power, the throttle blade and the vforce reeds would be a good choice. You will make a bunch more power.

Yes you should feel the difference. I think they are the same but they are a little bit different. Now if you decide to just change the reeds you will have to tune the carb a little bit. But the reeds and the power now or the blades will help you alot through out the power band.

Yea, no problem. Also these mods will get you VERY noticeable power gains but face it. A cr80 wont make power like a 125 or a 250. so just keep that in mind. The Quick Shot Accelerator Pump Cover is for 4 strokes I think. How it works is when you twist the throttle open it shoots fuel in so it feeds more fuel into the motor to give you more power. The stock unit only has 1 hole in it to pass fuel the Quick Shot Accelerator Pump Cover has 2. So more fuel means more power.
