Buy a few sets of tires and fuel instead...Results from reed blocks are usually just a placebo

Rad valve for 125s and vforce for 250s was the general concensus back when i rode 2 strokes. I dont think they give enough benefit to justify $150 but to each their own.

Agreed... OEM pipes and reeds do fine on my 05/07 CR125's.

Having said that, I have a PC Platinum, FMF Fatty, 304's, V-Force and Boysen reeds, bla,bla,bla.

The aftermarket shit looks rad, so I like it. Other than that, a waste of money in my case because I am old, fat, and slow. Gotta float the sport. I am sure the fast young "Whippersnappers" may well experience some gains, real, perceived, or otherwise. YMMV.

Lectron carb was the "Game Changer". Best thing I have bought in ages. I love those things!

EDIT: Added the YMMV bit.
