I had been talking with my dealer about the rich condition I had in the mid range on my 2001 MXZ 800. He led me through a variety of scenarios that could be the cause of the rich condition. We ruled them all out except for one. He had mentioned that a few 2001's had come back and they found that the rubber coating on the reed cages was coming off. I pulled my reed cages this weekend and found that the rubber on the reed cages looked like an old sunburn peeling off. The rubber was blistered all over the place. I could visually see where the reed petals weren't completely seating. Has anyone else run across this? Does the dealer have updates for these reed cages or will he give me more of the same? (Not that it matters that much anyway since we had over 50 temps in Michigan today!!
