I put them on my '82 IT175J - significant increase in power across the powerband. Definitely a good/inexpensive investment!

Just put a set in my 79 YZ 125. They fit right in, but still having jetting issues as I went from a 32 mm carb to a 34 mm. Aside from playing with jets, everything seems ok so far

Ok, i tried the reeds and it seems to take away some bottom end snap for a better top end pull. I like them but the jetting probably needs to be cleaned up a bit.
