Xplorer reeds

OK, I bought a set of Boyeson Power reeds for my Xplorer 300. Went to put them on today.............Got the carb and looked at the fricken thing. WHAT THE GODDAM HELL?!?!?!?!? Why in the hell would Polaris make it so you have to pull the jug off to change a fricken reed?!?!? Even the Haynes repair manuel I got doesn't say anything about this. They show the reed coming off with the intake manifold. Doesn't mention the 300 at all I guess. I dunno if it's gonna be worth the work to put these things on. What do ya all think? I've heard that the Power reeds make quite a bit of difference. I was really hoping on having the reeds and a pipe from hot seat performance on it.

Oh, and by the way.......Anybody have any good clutch setups for an xplorer? Somebody told me that they put a stiffer spring in a trailblazer and they could pull a wheelie pretty easy. Trailblazers are 250 4 strokers, right?

Re: Xplorer reeds

josh is right a Trailblazer is a 250cc two stroke, and as far as being worth the work putting on the pipe and reeds YES, its worth it

Re: Xplorer reeds

Ya, but to take off the jug I gotta take off all the plastic on the front and the gas tank just to be able to take off the head. And I think taking out the engine would be even worse. The thing is, it only gets about 1 more horse by putting in these reeds. The pipe is supposed to add like 8-10. Now that would help out a lot since it only pushes like 27 now I think.

Re: Xplorer reeds

I know this is late but the 300 doesnt have reed vavles and that is why there is no metion of it in the service manual.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: Xplorer reeds

Looks like reeds in there. I took off the carburetor and looked in there. If they don't use reeds, what do they use for intake?

Re: Xplorer reeds

you are talking about the 96ish explorer 300 right. The 300 motor does not use reeds. Are you sure you were not looking at the piston.
