My buddy was up this week and rode my 2001 classic 1500 FI a few times and now he HAS TO HAVE ONE. Looking for a low milage used bike. Anybody know of a good deal? Does anyone know the advantage of FI over carb?
Love my bike and Mom does, too.
fs - i believe the big advantage of FI is computer controlled fuel delivery
which is very consistent and simple to adjust and change compared to carbs
and also cold weather start ups are much easier :wink:
Try www.cycletrader.com --You might have to drive a little but there is some pretty good deals. You could always fly to the bike and ride it back!! Thats the up side of buy'in out of town, It could take you a week to get home.<BG>
i would have him keep his eyes on ebay like bud8fan mentioned. you can come across some really good deals and most people are great to deal with, especially with a large purchase. heck, i even bought my truck off ebay and flew down to TX from MA to pick it up !! as far as FI, everyone made all the good points, basically it is just easier to work with and modify. good luck, ride safe.
And yes, that is what I paid. Cost $400 to ship it up to the Seattle area, but I'm happy as can be. A wash job and a coat of wax, and it shines. Absolutely nothing wrong with it.
It pays to do your homework. I though it must have been a scam, so I checked the shop's local BBB on the net and confirmed that it was a legit business and a clean record of 15 years. Ya just gotta be fast and lucky.
