The wiring diagram really isn't that complicated. The carb, on the other hand, has a buttload of tiny passages, small moving parts, springs, jets, and needles. All of which can be broken beyond repair in a crash or when you decide to take it apart on the roadside. They can also be easily lost on the ground. Heck, I have a hard enough time keeping track of all my carb parts in the garage. I can't fix a bent a bent throttle needle roadside anymore then I can fix a broken ECU. Not to mention, even most carb'd bikes have ECU's these days, so by having a carb you aren't eliminating that "scary" wiring diagram, you're just making it smaller.
