Relax, I was kidding. I welcome all input and ideas. I wish I had the chatbot's thoughts though.
lol So much wrong followed by so much right.
I used to be pro carbs......until I started tuning FI bikes. A power commander and a lap top. and the world is your oyster. SOOOOO much more adjustable than carbs, Soooo much easier. No gas smell on your hands. Adjustments can be made in seconds on the road (with a dyno it's even easier). You don't have to go out do a plug chop, then take the bike back to the garage to disassemble it. You just stop, plug the lap top into the module make your adjustment then try again...and I don't get met by my wife at the door instructing me to leave my gasoline smelling clothes in the garage!Fuel injection sucks. Carbs are adjustable with tools. Fuel injection is adjustable with mapping.... keep it simple.......
If you plan on buying a fuel injected bike and bringing it to the dealer everytime the stupid thing is screwed up..... go ahead.
If you are planning on having a bike that you can maintain with some basic tools..... get a carbureted moto.
I guess I am biased. I also hang out and race with old timers.. so there ya go. I never have any issues with my carbs. I set them up and run them.Well see now that's the thing, I've been riding fuel injected bikes since 1986 and have yet to take any of my bikes to a dealer because it screwed up. They just work awesome and without fail. Even the one I dropped in the lake just needed to be dried out and it worked fine afterwards. Only special tools I own are the ones I make.
All my carbureted bikes and snowmobiles have needed frequent and repeated servicing plus the need to make adjustments with seasonal changes. Although I service those myself too, just with great regularity.
What did you buy that had such a crap fuel injection system that it turned you off them so badly? and did you try replacing the fuel filter?
Without knowing anything about how tall you are or how heavy you are, a CB350. As suggested earlier, they race them so there's a LOT of aftermarket and go fast knowledge out there to make them peppy.Alright hillsy, I get your point. Is there a bike you would recommend that is a good first bike but that I can also make my cafe racer wet dream come true? I'm looking for a winter project. I won't be able to ride until next spring anyways.
