I have run the S&S reed valve for 3 years now and it works great. No more pissing around with the stupid plastic gear etc - just install and forget.

It's your call, but should you really be listening to others who have not installed or used one?

Cheers

I've installed the S&S reed valve in a number of engines and had one that just wouldn't work in a stock '83 shovel. The engine would blow oil out of the case breather and I never figured out why. I put in a stock breather and the engine was fine !!! Go figure ?

anythings better than the plastic gears,but the best set up is a properly timed quality steel rotery gear,on big inch motors,remove the screen (BTW,TISSUCK,we`ve done alot of testing with the reed valves to come to this conclusion)

i installed the revtech +10 degrees adjustable breather, seems to work well i simply installed it at the factory (revtech) setting so far...i have tried advancing or retarding the timing of it, not sure what advantages or issues i may get into by adjusting it so i simply left it
