Default New To The Block

Just joined recently & am looking at Boulevard 50 series (used).
Anyone have thoughts on the S50? With the carb concern as I'm in WI & like to ride during cold weather-are there start issues w/it? Thanks.

Takes longer for the carb to warm up than the FI.

Welcome from Indiana.
If you're concerned about the cold air, then a fuel injected model (c-50,M-50) may be the way to go.
It's all personal choice.

I have just joined but had my 02 Volusia for about 5 years. Here in Tennessee I have hit the road in single digit temps on more than one occasion. She is a little slow to start but does just fine after a few minutes of warming up. Wish I could say the same for my gloves...

I believe '06 and up are all FI. I have and '08 with FI and I LOVE the FI; start and go, easy to adjust with an add-on FI controller, if we were in Scotland I'd have to say it's completely brilliant.

Welcome from Maryland, I have to agree, the FI is great, hit the start button and go no matter what the temp is.
