I'm a little confused on these things. They pull the reed block OUT of the intake tract more??? WHY??? From my understanding the closer the reeds are to the piston the better?? Is this just another gimmic that people are buying up?? My 670 likes a SHORT intake tract and the 700/800 wants a LONGER intake tract?? HMMMM....

This one keeps getting debated back and forth. In some sleds it works some it dosent. I ran them in my 800 last year....I honestly cant say if they helped or hurt. With the 800 they are supposed to allow the fuel charge a better path to the upper transfers.....I always heard that the reeds were to close to the ports so that the fuel coming past the stock cages got deflected into a straight pattern and this is why it didnt disperse. Pushed back by spacers gave it more room to get into the transfers.
Im gonna remove them and am using V-Force3 cages. RKT is doing up a Head/Piston/Shim kit for me right now, I also shipped my cylinders to him for the intake tract mod. This should be interesting :thumbsup:

"reed spacers will slow you down with stock reeds and their stopper. I believe the reeds actually block part of the intake when fully open wich is why they use spacers"
I'm actually wondering the same thing as I'm considering the same option on my 700 twin.
Purple punisher, what do you mean they will slow you down when used w/stock reeds and stopper. Then you say that is why they use spacers. Either it's a typo or I don't understand what you are saying.
If you need help always ask the one who is busy, the others have no time!!
the spacer just pulls the the reed cage back from the cyl. to unblock the rear boost port, there is no horse power gain or loss, it does clean up the bottom end burble on 800s, the engine runs crisper and there is a notable difference, but nothing on the dyno
