    So, what had happened was...

    I'm actually on the board of directors for Yamaha. They've actually asked me a few times if they should put some fuel injectors on the TW, but my Japanese is bad. I was gonna say yes, but I can't remember how to say yes in Japanese.

    I live at 5500 ft. and ride mainly that elevation and higher. Never had a problem with sputtering or anything. Possible my dealership actually did something right and jetted it proper for the elevation here upon assembly, but I've seen the goons in their shop so I'm guessing no. I love this bike FOR its simplicity, and wouldn't want to complicate it. For reasons stated before, out on the trail, in the middle of BFE. In rural NV, we are desolate, and cell towers are only located along I-80 and near towns. The only places with more distance between towns is AK and probably WY. I don't feel like pushing a EFI broke down bike 70 miles to the nearest dwelling to call for a truck to get my shit home. I stand a better chance of being abducted by aliens. Maybe they'd hook the LCpl. up with some E.T. tech. Warp core, cold fusion, cloaking, and all it would cost is a probe in my ass. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

    That lean factory jetting actually works out rather well for us mile high denizens. Those sea level TW types who enrichen things significantly are the ones who seem to sputter and act unhappy at elevation.

    Your're right! My 130 main jet is great at home(around 1000') but in Utah my bike would sputter and miss at high RPM's when over 6000 ft elevation. My buddy with stock jetting had less of a problem.
