:thumbup

I have FI though!! :mrgreen

Do the newer stars not come with that???
The 2008 1300's do....I believe all of the earlier 1100's / 650's are carbureted.

my 2007 V1300 has FI, thank god for no more carbs
those who can't tune carbs, generally can't tune FI either.

Both generally suffer from the same sorts of problems too. The upshot of carbs over FI is that if you know what you're doing, you can fix it at the side of the road with a pocket knife and a stone, or atleast fix it enough to limp home. FI's big advantage is fuel economy and emissions.
