EFI or Carb ?

Postby Bigair » Thu Dec 09, 2010 11:20 pm

Trying to get back into the riding/racing and curious of pros/cons of a EFI or Carb bike. Thinking of a 09 KX450 or just get a 07-08 and save that $ ...Any tips ?

Well for what little I know, efi is more responsive than carb.

Thanks. Is the EFI just easier to start, or just the power diff. ? I know the carb engines have "hot start" issues
