Boyesen Power Reeds for 2004 Suzuki LT 80

Recommended Posts

Reeds have much the same effect as a cam.. stiff reeds give better low down power, but stifle the revs, and soft reeds work the opposite.

It's all compromise regarding the power.  The thing I'd be looking at is the durability of the reeds..  some break or fall apart easily..

I haven't had much experience but one son loved two strokes for a few years and played around a lot. He eventually decided that steel reeds were better.

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      My son and I were "gifted" a KQ300 that doesn't run. I am beginning to try to figure out what is happening - and what is missing/disconnected. I connected a battery and found that it does have spark. I was able to get it to fire briefly when I sprayed some carb cleaner in to the carb. So, I am assuming that it is just a fuel issue. I'll begin by checking the stopcock and fuel pump and then take the carb off and clean it.
      However, I am finding other things that are missing and not sure if they might affect this. I tried to test the voltage regulator/rectifier only to find there isn't one. I know there are a bunch of hoses disconnected and possibly some missing. Also, the air box was removed and all parts of the air filter are missing. The throttle cable is disconnected but I did get the cover that needed to be removed to disconnect it. Do you all see anything else that looks like it is missing from the pictures below?  
      Is there anything else I should test for it not firing? Thanks for any help. This is my first quad so I am learning as I go.

      Does anyone have a used set of tires for a '97 Honda Recon pretty close to Sumter, SC?  Not looking for anything new or expensive but they've gotta hold air and have some tread left.  Wheels not needed.  Sizes are 22x7x11 and 22x10x9.  Thanks.
