Carburetors are even MORE fiddly than fuel injection. And if you don't know anything about tuning 4 carbs, good luck finding a shop that will even LOOK at it. That being said... The last carbureted GSXR 750 was 1997. They were a sort of hi-bred electronic carburetor...

The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

i know how to tune a carb what i dont like is being stranded because of a stupid way over priced piece of electronic shit i like things simple kinda like putting a carbed 318 in my jeep to get rid of the fucking fuel injection and all the worthless sensors that seem to fuckup at the worst possible time

I'd choose FI over carbs. They're not that convenient. They suck when it's cold. They need to be warmed up. They're harder to start. Tuning is not easy if you don't know what you're doing, plus if you get it wrong, you have to take it apart again. FI you just plug it in the computer.

You gotta worry about your floats & bowls if parked too long.

I love FI, best thing done to a bike.

On a bike or small machine I’d have to agree I like fi better, all around better performance , less maintenance not to mention the ethonal in fuel these days just destroys the smaller carbs blah blah! However on a car or truck I’m old school Id perfer a carb , I can manually tune it with out a computer or lab top and in my opinion it’s just easier.

Oh yeah, Id like to add, change in atmospheric pressure affects your carbs. You can't tune for all atmospheres

Carbs are alright we got by with them for 75 years.
Once they’re synced and jetted right per the intake and exhaust just leave them alone.
But I do like FI.

Like was said earlier, it is a toy. I had FI on my 600 and it was nice to just hop on and ride. I had no garage then so tinkering with carbs wouldn't have been convenient. Now that I have a garage I want the wrench time. That, and a naturally aspirated bike sounds a bit different...for some reason the little bit of a howl you get when 4 carbs are sucking as hard as they can makes my man parts tingle.

I have 4 carbureted bikes in my garage, along with numerous other carbureted toys. I have tuned them all at one point or another. I am actually pretty good with carbs, been dealing with them since I was a kid. Just getting old, and am ready quit fiddling with them every year. I was an automotive technician for 10 years, and no stranger to computerized fuel injection either. I'm ready to move up to FI on a bike... Looking for an '01-'02 750-1000... I don't sell bikes unless I just don't like them, so the bikes I have will just get a new roommate, lol...

Where are you, and what do you currently ride?
