I need some advice on how a bad reed will affect peformance as to how a cylinder fires. I am reed stupid.....I guess..



I have one jug on the 93' T-cat that is not up to snuff yet, UECAR is checking it over probably as I type this now.

i just got my 01 zl600 back from dealer. I had a performance problem, very sluggish when you pinned it and would only get to about 6000rpm. When I checked plugs and stuff found one cylinder flooding bad.
To make a long story longer, it turned out that one petal broke off the housing. They were V-force so I just switched them back to stock and it worked fine after that.
