Hi, Everybody
Two weeks ago we started a thread about the 90 hp Mercury 2 cycle engine and a lot of people complained about excessive smoke and rough idling. I was wondering if anyone knows about the "Boyesen Power Reeds"? Or if anyone has used them.
They claim that their two stage power reeds versus the standard single stage will eliminate the smoke,rough idling and sputtering known in 2 cycles engines. Is this true?

I have tried them on an older Evinrude big twin 40hp years ago. They do make a difference in the idle smoothness. But, I had problems with the petals breaking every other year or so. After the second time, I put stock reeds back in and decided to live with the sneezy idle.
