Count me as an old guy that can accept the change to electronic everything. I was happy to see points switch to CDI. I was happy to see brakes switch from cable drums to hydraulic disk and I am equally happy seeing carbs headed for the dumpster of history. I have no more love for jetting than I did for adjusting points.

All fuel injection requires is learning what the different sensors do, how to test them and having the right tools to work on it. I have never had any issues diagnosing and repairing fuel injection problems in my trucks the rare times something screws up. So I can't imagine the bike will be any different. No more trial and error jetting sounds awesome to me

While the carb is well sorted and perfectly jetted on my 640, I will gladly trade it for fuel injection on my next bike.

Your rant is more pathetic than the Vanilla bikes being produced. I am sure if you look long enough you can find a few that you like.

By the way it is: they're (as in they are) [klay]

Yeah this needs a bit of further explanation. Between the shifter and the electric start button I count at least two moving parts, and that's just the ones you can see.

Need? No.
Worth it for 14" of ground clearance? Yes.

When compared to ph0rk, who is too lazy to learn how to use his brakes and limits himself to F/I bikes, you are quite open minded.

Have you seen some of the retarded shit that people do post seriously? Nothing is too weird to think that somebody believes it.

Does this mean you were joking about the helicoil thing? Because that's pretty bad too

This is true.

as far as the heilacoil thing - actually no. by the time I sold my 650R, almost every single bolt hole that requires regular access had been Heilacoiled. If you are racing one of those every weekend, and doing a lot of maintenance, you would be surprised how fast they strip.

Can I have more technology on my next bike, please? I want a heads-up display in my helmet.

I want sensors on the sides of the bike to flash an alert in my helmet when they detect a vehicle in my rear blind spots when I flip the turn signal on.

I want a range sensor in the front to chirp at me when the cars up ahead suddenly slow down.

And then I want a sensor that alerts me when there is a job available at the salary it would require for me to pay for all that.

I saw that.

I also happily used both FI and ABS on my 20 degree commute this AM!

Surface to Surface missiles also please included with that heads up display or at least a remote guided .50 cal
