    I loved my 200. A few years later I got a Banshee........that ended badly. Dirt bikes are useless in the everglades.

    Yep, ive never owned a fuel injected bike, but I want too. All my bikes have been carbed. My current one is. They have only been running fuel injection for the last 3 years.

    Best ATV I have ever owned was a 1989 Kawasaki Tecate 4! 250CC liquid cooled race engine.

    Not when your racing. You need the power instantly, especially supercross.

    Also now you can program the ignition, so if your doing nationals and your at a really high elevation you can program it to produce similar power if you were at lower altitudes.

    With carb, got to mess with jets and clip positions, and its trial and error most of the time.

    My first was a 110, then a 200. They I got a 250R and traded it for a Banshee. Worst trade ever.

    Trail and error with a carb means you need more practice. I used to be able to tune one in about 15 minutes.

    Couldn't handle banshee power?

    My buddy had one that was fully built all chromed out, and pulled like 120+ MPH at the desert.

    I can tune my currently just as fast. But i know that factory team mechanics much rather prefer the Fuel injection, just as much as the riders.

    Banshee's were rockets if you could keep them running but had MANY problems. I stuck to yamaha's other racer and that was the warrior.

    No it was a crappy engine. Blew it slap the hell up in a few months. Honda engines at the time were FAR better built. You can't kill those old Honda engines. Yamaha sucks from that era.

    That's because its plug and play. Not because its better.

    I agree, On paper a 2 cylinder 2 stroke sounded awesome but the design of the engine had major flaws and tore up quite easily. Another favorite is the Honda 400EX!

    Once again due to using 4 stroke engines. You need fuel injection to compensate for poor performance.

    how so, yamaha still runs carb on their 2013 250f because they claim they get better performance out of the bike, then when they tried fuel injection.........

    I bet all the bikes in BF3 run carbs.

    Just chiming in to give a "no thank you" to all of the people with love for two stroke engines. Please remember this while driving your Model T's home from work.

    Anyways, I don't always go to war, but when I do I make sure to always bring my Thompson brand black powder to load my muskets. :rolleyes:

    Of course! Unfortunately, you'll have about 50 5.56mm caliber rounds in your chest by the time you try to get that thing fired.

    This all goes together with your misguided 2 stroke loving.

    Not with you shooting. You're a cat with a monocle.
