I had one of those moments today that made me really appreciate fuel injection. Wanted to take my Reflex 250 out for a spin. It had been parked for about 2 weeks and usually this is not a problem. Went to start it and it sputtered for a second then died. Then I tried to crank it several times and nothing. Placed it on the charger to keep the battery up and figured it might start if I let it sit for 15 minutes or so. I tried again and it sputtered and turned over at about 500 rpm's then died. Tried to restart again but nothing. Heck with this so took out the NGK plug and it was gas fouled. I also checked the gap and it was fine. I thought about drying it out and trying again but I remembered I had a spare plug so I just installed a new one. After installing the new plug it fired up quickly and has been fine all day. Now I know a lot of people don't like fuel injection and say its expensive to repair etc etc. However its just so much easier to work with. Anything fuel injected will usually fire quickly even after sitting for month(s) and be mostly drama free. I can't say its impossible to fowl a plug with fuel injection but its far more rare. I don't know how many times I have had a bad start situation requiring a plug replacement. Also some carbureted bikes just don't want to come to life if they sit any length of time not to mention the risk of contamination dirtying up the carb. I know carburetors have advantages and may be more reliable and easier to fix. However in my experience Fuel Injection has never let me down and it is far better on a daily basis then carburetors.
