A carbuerated bike will never leave you stranded with a failed fuel pump.

The best system is the system that adjusts itself.
Changing the exhaust on my scram (EFI) = changing the mapping at the dealer
Changing the exhaust on my bmw x-challenge = the system adjusts itself (advice from my beemer dealer)

Doesn't even have to be dead, and this is the reason I prefer my motorcycles with as few electronic 'controls' as possible (none of my four bikes has EFI, or an ECU).

I had a 2001 Aprilia Falco, which as a riding machine was brilliant once I retrofitted a Factory Pro map and a Penske shock. Trouble was, as a sport bike the battery was small and the charging system not terribly robust (the official designation was SL1000, the SL translating roughly to 'super light', and it was). My commute was only ten miles each way, which was not sufficient to recharge the battery fully after starting the big, high-compression V-twin. If I happened to catch a cylinder on compression when starting, it would stop turning, and no matter how quickly I released the button the voltage would drop to the point where the ECU would reset - everything. He never failed to start; but when that happened (probably 25% of the time) I had to reprogram everything to set the electronics up the way I wanted. After four years of having to keep the bike on a tender every night I traded it for a Thruxton.

Maybe when they stopped painting the bikes and started shipping them with just a primer?



























It must be more recently than that, unless that seat is off another model?
Actually, all my bikes look like they are just primered but it is only because of the ever present layer of dirt.
