Late model carbed vs EFI discussion

What is the Pro's and Con's of the late model (00+) carbed vs newer EFI engines? Do the new engine incorporate a MAP sensor?

Have a look at the search and you'll find oodles of discussions on it.

Carbs were on the Bonnevilles only through '08 in the states, EFI from '09 and forward. Searches should turn up plenty of discussions of the pros and cons.

EFI Bonnies have two MAP sensors, here's a write up about them:

I can give you two straight off the top of my head.

Carb con: terrible to start on cold damp days.

Carb pro: much nicer-shape tank than on the EFIs.

I have learned to use the search window every time I have such questions. I tend to find my answers every time.

Carbs are for manly men. EFI is for the feeble.

I have no trouble with starting my carbed America.

Pros to carbs, they're easy to adjust when you make engine modifications. Just change jets.
Cons. EFI adjusts automatically for altitude, temperature and humidity, but you have to remap when you change intake or exhaust systems.

I frequently ride over the Sierras from California to Nevada and can notice a little decrease in power when I get up around 7,000 - 8,000 ft, but not enough to worry about.

I don't think you can go wrong with either carbs or EFI Triumphs

In a blind taste test, I don't think most could tell the difference between the two tanks
