Im currently running v-force 2 reeds in my bike (stock 88 with a FMF fatty and Powercore 2) and have heard a lot about the Boyesen reeds are they any better? I have recently replaced the reeds in my v-force so they are up to shape.

Are you asking about replacing Vforce 2 reeds with boyessen reeds or about the block? Vforce 2 vs boyessen rad valve? If you are asking about just reeds, I believe the boyessen are a tad bit thicker.

It depends what power characteristics you are looking for--different reeds favor different parts of the power band (low tension vs. high tension). The V-force favors the top end, especially the 2. It flows more on top--no insert--which is why some prefer it over the 3. If you are looking for more bottom end grunt, the Boyesen RAD valve is a good option. Their aluminum manifold is more restrictive than the V-force, so the top is not as strong. It is also not a good option for big bores.
