Everyone else I have spoken with has said the Boysens would have a longer life. That the Carbon Techs would chip up sooner. Can you give me anymore info on the types of sleds they were in. Thanks for the replywould really recomend you stay away from Boyseen reeds. I had a set in my Cat zl 500, got 800 miles on them and they came apart leaving me stranded in the middle of an orchard. I also work in a snowmobile shop and we have had several sleds come in with Boyseen reeds that were broken. I havent yet worked on a sled that had broken V force or carbon tech reeds. Hope this helps.
In many cases, backfiring is a result of worn out or damaged reeds.Originally posted by SkiDoo55X
[br]Another thing with v force or carbontec reeds is if the sled backfires more than likley it will break the reeds. I have seen the effect of a backfire on v force reeds.
