    Anyone else hear anything like this?



    I wonder what it would do to the resale value of existing used TWs?

    ME: I imagine Yamaha would raise the price a bit on new fuel injected bikes. Without knowing if it would be open loop or closed loop, I'd think the biggest advantage would be increased tolerance for stale or bad fuel.



    I doubt if it would have much effect on prices of the older TWs, but people are likely to resist paying above $3K for used when a new one with fuel injection is less than $2K more. Just a guess on my part.

    I wouldn't want an EFI bike unless I was traveling in elevation a lot.



    The EFI will add cost, weight, it will be mapped lean and will need a piggy-back ECU to change maps. It's easier to buy a $5 jet for a carb. I can fix a carb, I can't fix a fuel pump or throttle body.



    I like my 1980s engineering, thanks.

    My WR250 id fuel injected and runs flawlessly from sea level to 6500'. haven't been any higher yet. I assume it runs open loop since i can't find an O2 sensor on it. I wouldn't even consider buying a new carbed bike. The down side ti EFI is if you do any performance mods you will need to buy fuel manager. extra $200. I doubt the EFI ads more than a pound over a carb.
