The original are SS (metal) and fracture over time when they do it gets swallowed into the cylinder and wrecks the pston and cylinder :cry: When I built it the fist time I installed OEM reed plates when I went into it the second time I went with these it really wakes up and it pops out of the hole fast... You do have to re-jet the carbs (maybe) I had to re-jet 5. You leave the carb cover off and blip the throttle in daylight if you see a flame behind the throttle plate you go up in jet size till its gone... Nuttin to it....
I was turning it around 6300 RPM I spec that's what broke a reed it runs out best around 5900 at 63MPH so I don't push it above that anymore... I had that engine on a 84 Winner and it would run a dangerous unstable 70 MPH like it was on ice,,, the difference is the 90 weighs 400 lbs more and stable (safe) 8) This post was edited by Hobo,NC at 04:49:02 02/19/14.
