How A 2-stroke Reed valve works.
A reed valve is simply a one way valve that lets the air/fuel mixture from the carburetor into the crank case during vacuum.

When under pressure, the reed valves close to allow the fuel mix in the crankcase to be forced up into the cylinder.
The reed valve also atomized fuel as much as possible as it enters the crankcase. Better atomization = more power.
