Saying "Vastly superior technology" is the same as saying "my idea is better than yours".
It means nothing until it is proven.
Currently, FI has PROVEN itself to be a better performer, easier to tune, faster to tune, but ONLY FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, and then it requires additional maintenance, or replacement.
More often than a carb by a factor of at least 25 to 50.
FI will eventually catch up with carbs in reliability, probably in the next 3 to 4 generations.
Until then, I refuse to be a Beta Tester for a 'vastly superior technology' that is impractical and high maintenance in an off-road environment. MX is different. You can see your truck from the track!
Here's a list of 'vastly superior technology' that took a looooong time to be perfected:
- 21" front wheel: went from 18, to 19, to 20, to 21, to 23, then back to 21.
- long travel suspension: this could take up books with the 'technology improvements' that lasted about 45 minutes until breaking. 1972 till about 1979 until it was superior for the trail rider.
- Reed valves: that took about 5 generations
- Aluminum frames: still inferior and heavier, but cheaper to make.
- blah blah blah
You make it sound like fuel injection is something new and it has not been tested or the technology has not been developed. That's simply not the case.
Like I said, if FI is not reliable at thisv point it, it has nothing to do with FI
Itself, it has to do with crappy implimentation.
