Well..i was wondering if anyone on here has or know anyone who has carburated their ltr...i just have a bad feeling about this EFI lasting in the long run...what size and brand carb would you guys run? I would think you would cut some weight by going carb too...idk though..please dont cut on this thread its just something im pondering...let me know what you guys think
to feed the pondering, I'm not sure anyone would do it.... unless they were really wanting to drop a couple pounds.
The benifit to a carb is no ECU, injector, or added cabling and sensor.
I sure wouldn't know what to run.... if I were going with a carb. I guess to put it the simplest.... If I (me) wanted a carb, I would have just bought the YFZ I looked at the week or so before I bought my LTR.
EFI doesn't just fail. something usually causes it. If electronics are bad from the factory.... it will show up in the early life of the motor. Like some of the LTRs that did early on with hard starts and flakey switches and ecu's. But those should all be warrentee items.
I did the extended warrentee because it is a first run bike and motor of its kind.
The biggest drawback would be water.... yes the plugs and parts are water resistant, they are not water proof, so don't think your LTR can become a submarine.
Oh and the very best part is being able to sleep at night..... I swear every time we go to the dunes there is some cat out at 2:00am tuning his Mikuni's...... waaaaahhhhhhhhhhh nana nana na na whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa dddannna adddannnn annnnn naaaa naaa naaa (2stroke sounding ha ha ha)....
