Only if you want to hit the starter button and ride. If you want to tweak it, you'll have to go with carbs.
both sides atack just as much CD COBRA your as bad on carb bikes as I am on efi bikes.I dont know why you have trouble starting your carb bike.I think alot of the reason some of us carb guys start talking bad about the efi is do to the fact that guys like you that buy efi bikes first come on here and tell us what you have to do this and that to carb bikes,or they have this trouble or that trouble.When most of us have had them for years and know its not true.Maybe just maybe some of us carb guys might know a few things about the efi on your bike .I dont have a thing againest efi bikes.I do not like some of the things I know about the efi twins though but if one leaves the bike near stock those things wont hurt anyone.I bought my bonnie too keep untill the put me in the ground.If was going to trade a bike in every 3 or 4 years and keep it stock the efi would be good to go.BUT I do think that if you keep the efi bike as long as some of us have had the carb bikes I think they will cost more to keep on the road because there is so much more to go bad on the efi bike.Being a mechanic since the 70s I can say nothing last forever on any thing that runs so the odds are the more thats on something the more there is to go bad.both the efi and the carb bikes motors are pretty much the same peace for peace so parts inside the motor should last just as long.carbs do have troubles in time but then so do injectors both stop up and can leak down.After spending 1000,s on triumph parts over the years and seeing the prices I would not want be buying high priced sensors, injectors and ecu. coils pickup coils and ignter is all we have to stop our bike from getting us off the road besides the carbs and a dead batteryYour efi has all of those pluss all the sensors you allso have injetors that can go bad in place of our carbs.
You ecu cost about double what ours does new.Check the facts see if i am telling you wrong.
