Hi Bob

I have been collecting and fitting Lectrons since 1981. Bought many 2nd hand but that can be risky.
New ones are not cheap but can be got from ebay or direct from Lectron.

They fit in standard manifold and boot.

If I didn't have so many Lectron spares I would fit Keihin PWK 35mm Air Striker carb.

For what it's worth I had some warped boyesons on the bike last year. Lessons learned....

1) don't overtorque the reed screws, the reeds will warp like mad
2) boysen told me not to use the reed stops with the dual stage reeds. They said only use the mall metal plate provided with the reeds.

My bike has never run better....

1978 175E...  one year newer than me!

I too have used Boyessens many times in the past with good results.
But as I said in this thread, I got better results with the Banshee reeds and stops.

A small update to provide an extra option.

On some parts lists the reed block 10V-13610-01 is listed as a replacement. I got a NOS one for about $35 (bargain).
It's reed stop 10V-13616-01 (or 10V-13616-00) looks like a viable alternative to use for the upper reed stop as it is the same size.


The other one that looks viable is the Blaster reed stop 58T-13616-01. But I haven't measured one yet.

Thanks for the update, I drilled a spare set of stops to use, buying them standard with holes will save same work for the next bike. I have also been thinking about fitting VForce reeds for a blaster, might need a spacer and/or some grinding to the intake but the bolt holes match up.
