Well, I certainly don't want to see you go out and get hurt.I have one last question...
Will hillsy get mad if I call him mom.
It seems like all he wants to do is protect me.
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!
When you put those pod filters on your bike come back and tell us how easy they were to tune and run better than before.Also, while everyone is argueing about carbs vs fuel injection, I guess I'll throw in my opinion as well. I personally prefer carbs because that's what I'm used to and theyre easier to tune.
You won't learn to ride a bike on back roads. You might learn how to operate one but that's a different kettle of fish. I started riding at 18, had an older than me CB125 Super dream. You will crash and someone will knock you off. I had been in two bike crashes before I was 15, as a pillion as you can't account for dumb and a large % of car drivers are dumb so your chances are shit but if you start on something half decent, slow-ish and easier to ride then you can take more time avoiding the bellends in cars.I want to listen to your advice hillsy, but I hate waiting. Besides, I live in a motorcycle friendly area with plenty of back roads to learn on. I appreciate the advice, and you are welcome to keep trying to convince me, but at the moment, I think that I want to continue with a cafe build. Maybe with a smaller engine size though.
