thinking of installing delta 2 power reeds and a can in my 2002 mxz 800 will that give me much more power and.?and will i have to do anything like re jetting.and will this affect reliability. any comments welcome.?
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.
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.
