Once again a quality issue, well worth the wait, many thanks Del. I've just started reading it, waited as long as I could as once I start I can't stop and before I know it I've read it cover to cover. And to top it all my article has been included.

Welcome Skyliner, we have all sold bikes previously that we have regretted, which is why mention of us now have a number in our collections.

Good luck with your projects and be sure to post any questions you may have for the good folk of this parish to assist.

I canot remember who now but a few years back a member had a Boysen reed break up and it made a right mess of their engine they reckon , but I have never heard ayone sayabout a metal reed breaking up and damaging an engine 

How I found her and most of my progress so far.

A rear brake bracket has been welded on and the bar mounts got lowered an inch.

The standard Yamaha spec for the reed stops is partly to keep the bending of the reed petal within the tolerance of the metal that avoids fatigue failure.  You might find problems with reeds that are asked to open (bend) wider or, that have been deformed.  Plastic/fibre/carbon etc reeds have some issues, like spliting/delaminating/taking a set, that can show very quickly.  However, I am confident that the genuine Yamaha YZ125 type reeds will have a good quality.  Anyone know what servicing Yamaha state for the plastic YZ125 reed petals?  Cheers

Please have a look and vote on this pole   Thank you all.

Question applies to standard steel reeds installed correctly in unmodified reed blocks.

Poll on behalf of Tony.

Out of curiosity, could someone that knows how, post 1 of those pole things asking for anybody that has had a standard steel reed in a standard engine fail and those that have not, not including people that bent their reed stops first, just standard, I would like to know and I am sure others would also.

I don't know much about how to do these things, I am a bit discoelectric (they called us remedial in my day) and get fuffed up with computer stuff, I have to google most of my spelling because of peoples comments on it, so could someone do this for me please.
