Absolutely. We've seen this time after time. For those of us that ride beyond sight of our trucks...let's hope they really sort it out on the moto-squid version first before they bring it over to the WR!
Experience is why. Almost every street bike that has converted to "fuel Infection" goes through a season of flat or glitchy throttle response until the factory inevitably sorts them out.

You're kidding, right? A fuel injected bike will adjust the air fuel ratio automatically to compensate for temp and elevation, the only time you need a "laptop" is when you make changes to the intake or exhaust. I myself would prefer not to open up the float bowl two or three times a year to swap out jets, not to mention adjusting the AP squirt.
If the EFI system doesnt come with a laptop and a "map the engine, for dummies" book, then i think most of the users in TT would prefer the carb like it is..
Honestly, i cant see the real benefits of the EFI on a dirtbike..

I`m not afraid of EFI.. Bring it on! But i think that most of the WR buyers are more familiar with jets, than laptops..
And, when the carb can be cleaned when the bike doesnt run good, the EFI needs a doctor
MY thoughts are that efi will be great in the dirtbike world, as soon as every shop learns to sort the bikes out for the buyers that wants aftermarket exhaust..

2007 Yamaha YZ450F (pic here)
The first picture has emerged of Yamaha’s 2007 YZ450F motocross bike.
The new bike looks like it has remained largely similar to the 2006 machine but will gain new graphics and wavy discs. It is also likely to get re-valved suspension but the electronic fuel injection that has been rumoured to be on the new bike looks like it won’t be included this time round.

What are the chances the WR doesn't even get the new frame!
Just found this on Motorcycle news... the YZ wont be getting EFI (so I reckon there's no way the WR will!)

I just want a cool aluminum frame.
When do you think we'll find out?
