Scott you took the words right out of my head, I don't know much about doing a reed set up on these engines either and don't know what the overall benefit is other than maybe better low end response or something, which by the way I could be wrong about......?

Growing up I road lots of 2 smokers, my uncle owned a Yamaha dealership and my cousin and I road like crazy on the RD and the YZ 2 smokers and on down to the milder ones, all the bikes I ever had were either reed valved or rotary valve engines, anything to help with performance is much welcomed by me on these china girl engines as long as it doesn't cost more than the bike and engine is worth, I'd just put a motorcycle engine in a bike before I'd throw $800+ at a modified china girl... but if a reed set up made a big difference in the low to mid performance I'd do that mod to one.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
