I think that this is in the right section???

Please explain to me the function of reeds and why an aftermarket (Carbon) are better.

Thanks.

Reeds are valves, one way check valves to be exact. They allow the air/fuel/oil mixture to enter the cylinder, but not to come back out through the carb during the first portion of the compression stroke. They only allow flow one way, into the engine and that's it.

The whole point of carbon fiber reeds is that they don't warp as fast as the stock reed pedals. They last longer and not as prone to chipping either.
