Jokes aside, I appreciate the insight mrbb. At this point I only know cars and have never had a computer go out on a car of my own.
Without opening up another thread, do any of you know how these bikes handle aftermarket parts? Like switches, sensors, motors etc. Example, I can put third party oxygen sensors on my car and it does just fine... are there know quality aftermarket names out there for these parts?
HAHA< and NO I am not suggesting buying a used CDI period!
my money would not be wasted on that gamble!
and aftermarket electronic;s on HONDA 4x4 models, in my experience has been poor at best!
and I view this with most atv/motorcycle parts, I stick to OEM for electronic on main things any how
light bulbs I can see aftermarket!
exception will be IMO when you get into some of the more sporty machine's that either get raced or on like designs, say , many of the race atv's that see track time, same with super sport bikes and such
the main reason is, the aftermarket world is way more active and competitive, and in much higher numbers! and as such, seem to turn out way better products SOME times!
but many many times, when you buy cheap parts, you GET cheap parts
electronic's are just so hit and miss, same as with cheap knock off carb's made in who knows where, many work, many don't , its like pick of the litter, and for MOST< buying ONCE , is worth the higher costs than buying twice and having more down time, or stranded walking out!
aftermarket parts that tend to be OK(pending again name and quality)
oil filters, air filters, fuel filters, brakes, bearings, shocks, tires, wheels, light bulbs, grips and so on, the simple things, mass produced for many models and been around a LONG time,
NOT electronic's or carb's however IMO! on honda 4x4 atvc's
