Reeds and exhaust silencer for a MXZ 600

Postby mxztodd » September 2nd, 2003, 6:11 am

I know it's a little early, but I'm getting the itch to start tinkering with my sled and doing some upgrades. Looking for some help as far as putting a set of V-force reeds and some sort of exhaust silencer on a 2000 MXZ600. I'm looking to get a slightly different sound and a 3-5 hp gain overall. Does anybody have pro/cons or experience with a set-up like this or recommend a particular manufacture? Thanks and think snow!

The best bang for the buck with reeds is probably the boyesen petals. Depends on what you end up doing. Email me if you want more info.

drewalt, Thanks for the input. Why did you choose Boysen reeds over V-force? I don't have any experience with Boysen. Thanks again.

I have a Dynoport can with Carbon-Tech pedals only and Fett Brothers reed stuffers. Works and runs good. You might gain one hp with a silencer if you're lucky but I think that is all. The no.one reason to buy a can is to lighten the sled up and gain a little space under the hood.Best thing you can do is clutch your sled for bang for the buck.

Thanks for the information. I've had a couple of people say for the money, go with some sort of clutching like a heel clicker. I will have to way the options vs. cost.

a clutch kit and reeds make a big difference, put reeds on mine last year you might want to look into a different helix a little more angle

I put the V-force 3 reeds along with a Goodwin clutch kit and had a great seat of the pants improvement!
