$100 is a good price but i had problems with the screws coming out,and you cant loctite them cause its metal to plastic,you will get good throttle responce but i dont think it will add any power to a 500,the v-force work better on larger displacement machines,but the throttle responce is a given

I have 3,000 miles on mine (99zrt) no problems. I also think the 500's will gain very little if anything with a set of reeds. I have bought a set for my 900 also. I would save the $$ and get a clutch kit if you don't have one. Kevin

this year im trying the boyesen petals,i had good results with the v2's but didnt want to spend $420cdn for the v3's when the boyesen are only $90cdn,and i keep hearing that the boyesen are just as good but 1/4 the cost..

Go for it thats a great price. I've ran 1500miles with mine and my friend has 4000miles on them now no problems for either of us. I have them in a 500 and they make enough difference to justify the cost of them new let alone a 100. It has given me much better throttle response, and a little more power in the low and midrange. Its not the gain like you get on a 800 but it makes a difference.
