jesse500 said:They are held in by about 6 or so bolts, they are mounted in the top half of the crank-case. They are after the carbs (separated by a boot from the carbs). "downstream" is actually a decent way of saying it. They take the fuel/air mixture, and release it into the intake port of the cylinders, in molecular form)little drops, kind of like a mist of fuel/oxygen). which combusts in the combustion chamber (obviously).
V-Force 3 reeds are 100% NOT worth $285, and produce a performance gain so minimal , I would be surprised if you even noticed it. they claim 2-3HP, but that complete BS. People I know bought them, ZERO gains anywhere, no performance wise, or fuel efficiency wise..... Just the ability to say the sled has V-Force 3 reeds, and to add $5 to the sleds re-sale value.
If you want to spend $280, buy a clutch kit, and and some new plugs & exhaust valve bellows. Money well-spent.
