Stock reed stop on Aftermarket Reeds???

Recommended Posts

I recently installed some Boyesen Power Reeds on my 2004 cr125r and used the reed stop (the small brass looking rail) that came with the reeds. After doing a little research I have read somethings saying that you should use the stock reed stop on the aftermarket reeds to prevent them from breaking. Which one are you guys running? Should I switch to the stock reed stop?

Maybe I'm way off the whole thing, but I figure I'd rather ask here than end up somewhere stranded with some snapped reeds.

Thanks for any Help

I always done away with the stock Reed stop and ran Boyesen reeds for a long time. Never broke a reed, that is how boyesen recommend them to be run.

Thanks for the reply. I haven't had issues with them either

They usually come with directions to tell you what to use reuse and not use.

Call the mfg to verify, I read the opposite, that the stock "wing" looking reed stops should be removed and the supplied stops installed.

According to the installation instructions, it says bottom reed, top reed, rev plate, and then screws. That is how I installed them on mine. The rev plate is used instead of the stock reed stop right?
