it's a dirty job, [but someone's got to do it]





fuel injection, whoa, harry potter shit, only ever worked on bikes with carbs before, [ok, the last ducati i had was a fuelie but all i ever had to do was change the oil and adjust the chain] this was a job i've been dreading, but, i was pleasantly suprised, very few moving parts and a night with some scotchbrite and we are good to go, the more time i spend in the shed, the less i want to venture outside......

  3. Only had one fuel injected bike in the 80's when it was a new-fangled idea...a Kawa Turbo 750...always felt I was astride some futuristic spaceship...but now it's the norm...I'd still worry about a computer or sensor failure...but, the last several automobiles I've had were injected...aside from the magic of digital electrickery...I suppose it's the future Conan*...(another obscure Yank reference to a popular late night TV host...)
