What is coastering?

Coastering is replacing the reed valves on each cylinder head with a 'coaster'. This is a metal plate that replaces the valve and plugs the port (same as a marble would do). Some people prefer the look and even polish their coasters.

The reed system has several negative impacts to performance and ride-ability, the worst of which is excessive backfiring during deceleration. Other impacts of this design are Exhaust Pipe bluing, excessive exhaust heat, and engine heat.
