    What are the symptoms of bad reeds on a cr125?  Engine does not want to rev when I go to throttle coming off turns.

    Tried multiple jets – richer – leaner no change.

     

    Thanks

    Chipped/Crack reeds won’t rev high, will just run rich and limits your rpm.

    Will also run poorly and backfire at times

    You may also wanna check your fuel lines for cracks/leaks, especially the one for fuel pick up inside the tank, could be slightly cracked/cut and may suck air in the corners.

    Thanks for the response Freddy. I will check the lines to make sure there are no cracks.
