It will happen sooner or later with the quirky, slightly annoying, Italian EFI. Once again I had to the take it to the shop for an over-haul. Btw I'm using an indie shop not the local MoCo-guys who're scoffing at my classic scoot.
So, my trusted mechanic told me that sooner or later I have to be doing something drastic as in replacing the p.o.s. EFI.
Sure, if I had the money I would happily spend it on the splendid Zipper's Thunder Max performance EFI replacement but that would cost me more than US$ 2.000,- (or 16.000,- in local currency, more than half my monthly salary!) plus the hours at the shop. I'm not sure if it is worth it to spend that much money on a 15 years old iron-horse...
That leaves me with the obvious option - the good ol' carburetor!
I know that Mikuni offer some good carbs but I want something made in the USA (yeah, I know, but that's me
). And I want something classic, hence S&S Cycle Inc. My choice would be the Super E
Carb as I believe the Super G
would be a little over the top, am I right?
Now, has anyone here done this, gone from EFI to carb? And how many hours would it take for a trained tech?
