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)

Hobo, where are the reeds located and are they easy to replace? I'm not sure if I really need them, I've really slowed down on the water unless a thunderstorm is chasing me back to the ramp. Last time I was in my friends (he was 83 years old) 22ft bullet bass bt. with a 250hp on the rear he decided to kick it in the a$$. I think we were hitting about 75 and we were dancing all over the place and we hit a small wake and that really got things rocking and rolling. That was enough for me. My top speed is about 35 now
