    I'm just threw in some Boyesen Pro Series or something...the dual stage ones. They have two different materials, one on top and then a thicker one on the bottom, with holes in it. The thinner top ones open normally, and the thicker bottom ones open up when you open up the throttle. They hit harder than stock and I've been happy so far!

    If your looking for the best bang for your buck, got with some v-force 3. There pricey but are great! I ran them on my first blaster and was very pleased. I was running the boyeson pro series on my 92 blaster and was very happy with them too.

    Im leaning towards the v force 3 with the new cage. Whats up with the reed valve spacers? do they actually improve performance or are they just somthing to drop $30 on?

    I just got mine all back together from replaceing the case and the crank. when i replaced the the clutch and blocked off the oil injection the motor backfired and the motor started running backwards then the kick start gear caught and busted the case. pucked up another blaster for $100 got the case replaced then the guy that was helping me work on it grabbed the wrong nut for the stator and hammered it on with an impact, ended up having to cut the end of the crank to get it off.

    The V-Force are the best reeds you can get, but the boyesens on a stock ported cage are by far the best bang for your buck. As far as the reed spacers, I don't recommend them unless you have a carb clearance issue that they will solve.
