I've tinkered with cars and motorcycles all my life. I'm pretty good with some things. Not good at all with carburetors. I bought a 2002 VTX which to me is a modern bike. I recently got my wife a Shadow. The VTX is fuel injected, the Shadow has a carburetor. So far I think the fuel injection is good. Ask me later after the fuel pump fails on the road. Which shadows have fuel injection?
