im just wondering if you can put reed valves on an old sled motor and if it would be an advantage/disadvantage it would be a 83 indy 600 triple without reeds

I am no expert...but I'd say no, your pots are moulded to accept the reed cages, if you could just change the pots you may as well just put in a whole new engine...all you'd be keeping is the bottom end with the crank, and thats if you could find pots to fit it.
I wonder if there is anything that you can do to your stock intake to increase air flow.
If you have roundslides you could add those UFO's to your carbs.

no man, that engine won't take reeds, the bottom end is formed as a piston port. you CAN however, port the intake.

that's a job best left to a professional, but it's possible on piston port machines to do a porting job on the intake, as well as exhaust and transfer ports. same principal changeing y our valve timing to make the intake stroke longer in a 4-stroke.

if you want performance, that port job and some pipes is yer best bet.
