not sure about the Delta2's or the 800 but I have the original Deltas on my MX6 and they made a noticeable improvement in throttle response.

You might want to hold off and look at the Delta 3's that
are coming out! Kind of like the RAD valves with click on
pedals.

The sled comes with a fiber reed stock. If youre going to replace them, replace them with v-force as they will increase your reed area. The others only replace the reed petals w/a different thickness or tension. It will be very little diff. The v-force will not add much power on a dyno, but greatly increase throttle response. On some engines there is a good power gain, but I am referring to the MXZ800 here.

I am running the original VForce reeds, before the Delta series and I refuse to upgrade.  I spank my buddy's 96 ZRT with Delta 2s every time.  Man it woke that sled up.

on my testing ,and after talking with bill cudney,he had same result as I.the v-force were 2-3 hp across the power band and the boyeson reeds were 1-2 but 220 dollars cheaper.I know a couple guys with the 800's and they have had great results with the boyesons as well,I am thinking Idooski and mxzwfo both have the boyeson reeds in their 800's.these gains I posted were not on topend but more in the mid range.

I had delta 2's in my o1 800 mxz last season, it is a nice difference, but at the end of the season,900 miles, 2 0f the 3 screws came loose as did the whole reed cage box,I think the reed cage box came loose first because I noticed a leakage apperance from the outside of the reed, thought nothing of it but I think what happen next was the screws vibrated loose and I lost about 1/4 inch from the corner of the reed tip corner. Sled still ran,screws did not get injested. I got brand new delta 2's under warranty. Now I now what to look for.

I have Vforce on my 00 700 and they did make a difference.
I would recommend them for this sled.

On my 01 800, no difference at all in my opinion. Nothing
in the midrange. Moto took the reeds back and I replaced
with boyesen.

The delta 3's may be better. We'll have to wait and see.
One thing is for sure, Moto Tassanari stands behind their
products. No questions asked about getting my money
back on the 800.
