hi folks, I have just got a V-force reed valve for my YZ125,
in the box they provide 2 gaskets.

where should the gasket be place??
between the engine intake port and the reed valve?

or between the rubber manifold and reed valve??
or both?

the only strange thing is, my yz do not have any gasket at all,
for both area i mentioned. so do the manual, it doesn't show
any gasket in the diagram.

I would use both gaskets along with a minor amount of gasket sealer like the blue silicon. It is very important not to have an air leak in this area your bike will give you all kinds of lean problems you can not tune out with the screw.
I have the V force reeds in my YZ125 and I like the a lot, no leaks is the key
IMO
