I have never put performance reeds in any of my sleds.
How much of a difference do they make?
Are they worth putting on a F7?
What am I looking at for cost?
Is there a specefic brand?

I have a 2003 F7, clutched, jetted.

i have a pair of v-force 3 reeds still in the box, i haven't had the time to install them yet. but from what everyone says, they give you more mid range power, throttle response, but the only drawback is, when the motor gets warm, and you go to start it, you just need to hit the gas a little, and she will fire right up (which isn't even that big of a deal at all). boysen and vforce are the only brands i know of, but ide go vforce.

I've run v force reeds in both my 03 and 06 F7 with good results. As posted warm starts can be more difficult. I've noticed better gas mileage and increased mid range and throttle response. If you look hard enough you will find people on both sides of this question.

im on the fence about doing them in mine.. the v force will probably give a little more ass but the reed black itseld is a better setup in the boysens.... i dont know what your state is dooing but here in Ny we have to deal with the ethanol bullshit and were starting to see where the rubber housings on the reed cage will separate from the aluminum blocks.. just did a set in a ski-doo for my neighbor last week, but if u look at the boyseen the whole cage is aluminum with a small carb boot that can be found and replaced for about five bucks. hope it helps

Thanks for the responses guys.

Anyone else have an opinion on this? Do you like or dislike them in your sled?

I put a set (VFORCE III) in my 03 f7 SP (custom -my own - clutch, 2 degree key, can, and a few other "touch-ups"). First thing I noticed was the throttle response is incredible, even on the F7 (which already has awesome throttle response). I really haven't noticed the gas mileage but I definitely noticed the mileage with the timing key. I'm on the pro side of these...I've seen good dyno results with right setups. Hope this helps!

Has anyone tryed the boyesen power reeds that fit in the stock reed blocks? I was thinking of replacing mine due to mileage and wondering if they are any good or not. Not looking for vast gains or anything, but are they better than stock? The 80 dollar price tag has my eye. I have an 03 F7 efi. Is it also true that replacing the stock cages doesn't work so hot with the efi sleds?

the boysen reeds are just the reed petals they replace the stock ones (they attach to the cage)...the only real issue with reeds is when the tips begin to crack and fuel doesn't flow off them in a smooth path
