    Laugh now. :lol3 I hope we're both here in 5 (maybe less) years so I can say I told you so. Cell phones, I-pads, and even Kindles already have more than enough computing power to handle the com programs and operating systems necessary to upload the data. And actually, if you've ever seen any of the shell programs used to tune EFI on bikes, the settings usually mimic carb circuits, so your argument about needing to have knowledge of combustion is still valid, even when tuning EFI. Even 2-stroke carbs will eventually go the way of the dinosaurs... :rofl... http://twostrokemotocross.com/2011/11/ossa-250300-i-the-future-of-enduro/

    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.

    what is that screen you have? did you have to paint it to match or did you get it already colour matched?

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

























    :hide

    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.

    I believe the 2011 Scrams started without piping as I seen a black '11 in showroom without.
    My 2012 shipped as you see it.
    It came out of the box and onto the lift as is.

    Those screens were designed for the one instrument Scrams before the dual clocks.
    Apparently they don't fit the newer dual clock Scrams unless the mounts were modified with extended mounts.

    I really like the matched colour and style of those. Dealer suggested it wouldn't fit, so I ordered a Dart screen to fit my dual clocks.
