Re: If You Think Triumph Has Problems...
I agree, FI is inevitable. Look, they've had decades to get carbs working right. EFI is new tech for most of these guys. In 5 years, once they get the bugs worked out, it won't be an issue.

Re: sell it
I guess that'll take care of the problem for sure :)

Re: Injection
Talk to Mat Capri at about your Fi mapping woes.

Marvy! Another genius with the world figured out. Do us all a favor, hop on your "jap bike", take a long ride, and keep your ignorant, closed minded opinions to yourself. If you don't like the make, don't buy it! Go find yourself a nice "jap bike" forum and inject pearls of wisdom there. Otherwise,(operative phrase to follow...)SHUTUP AND RIDE!

955 Daytona has sagem FI!
And it runs spot on all the time. Obviously not a problem with sagem all around. Anyone?

EPA spec
I'd guess that the Tt's run great if tuned out of EPA spec, uch liek the Moto Guzzi Quota which gets horrible reviews of its injection system also. BUT, if you can find a dealer willing to tune them out of EPA spec, they run great. HOwever, this should not be nescessary with EITHER of these bikes.

Having recently completed a project with a lead Electrical Engineer from England, I can completely understand why the fuel injection system is screwed up. Talk about a random approach to engineering!

It should be a comfort to one and all that Lucas no longer makes motorcycle electronics. No, the lions share of their business comes from Airbus. If you look real close on the A340 you can actually see the ziener diode monted on the nose of the plane.

Re: Early release?
They have never made a profit and there is only one shareholder (AFAIK). Triumph are not a public company. So think again.
