Have you priced a set of Keihin FCRs or parts for them lately?R100Pilot said:Bein' older than most rocks, I miss 'em. Sure, I suppose if y'er a genius like Devi an' have access to all that fancy computer stuff, it's easy to retune, but for us mortals, jet size an' needle height was a lot easier to unnerstand.
Not to mention the cost. Add up the cost o' the PC or Tuneboy, the laptop, cables, an' whatever else an' you could buy a whole lotta jet sizes. Or a whole 'nother bike :beer:
Yeah, but I've lived in Florida all my life. Altitude changes? What's that? :drink:Devious2xs said:If the weather of altitude changes, you start over again.
Are you saying that he DOUBLED the horsepower by replacing FI with Carbs??? :laugh: :laugh:crashmasterd said:I recall a guy with a newish (1998?) BMW who got pissed at all the electronics. He removed everything, including the ignition, and replaced with mechanical stuff: Carbs, Points/condenser etc. He claimed in the end that he gained 12 Horsepower.
Of course that's probably mostly due to the change from 32mm throttle bodies to 38mm Carburetors... OR he could have been lying or simply deluding himself. :violent1:
I too miss carburetors, for the simple fact that I completely understand them. But I won't be going back. The advantages of FI are too great.
