the reeds, the mounting hardware, or the reed-block was not up to spec.I hate F/G reeds had them on Sam's Red head engine, had trouble with them staying close. Took them off turned them over, looked good, but I changed them to a new CF reeds, carbon fiber. My 2 year old engine #3, Blue Demon blew the pin bearing & twisted the crank but the CF reeds on that engine work great on another engine still.
today i rode the zpf and i let it wind out till it was screaming,if it a 4T i would have been floating valves prolly
so they 2T have a redline? for the most part the 4Ts dont
is there a reed i should consider or availble with this itl engine
can i crack the reeds reving to high?
but the name "Black Widow" is copyrighted and probably trademarked!My drag engines are for wide open, there are no corners, so the black widow 2 or 3 stage reeds which which PBU claims they invented are CF reeds & fingers, the bolts they give, are too small for the threads in my reed plate, and so on.
For small track racing, triple reeds might work better. Plus I never had a chance to really test them, cause the new B/B kit I put on had a warped cylinder, the first one I sent to Sam. The 2nd time I tried them on a different engine, which had its own problems, other than reeds, so it seemed like Bad Luck to me,lol,lol. Have them still in the reed jar.
when is it ok to use a triple stage reed. I'm petty sure I have only have a dual stage with a fg reed and a cf finger. I'm building the bike for a track with lots of turns. But from time to time I'll ride it up and down the street.
