As daft as the reason may be, it is because the carb irritated me too much. Here in the UK its usually cold, and I just found it so irritating messing with the choke, and I could never get it to run how I wanted with Cruzers on it. Other smaller things are the plastic fenders which I wasn't keen on but was by no means a deal breaker.
That said, I am fully open to getting a more modern one with fuel injection.
I've also got my eye on a vn900 classic but its a higher miler at 29k, though it does have full service history and has had the valves done. Is that a bit too high though? My vl800 had only 13k.
One more thing with regards to an FI C50, in the UK they have o2 sensors in the exhaust (is this called a closed loop system?). Is it required to mod some aftermarket pipes so the sensors fit in there for optimal running?
Thanks

That's too bad. After a couple hours of time, my jet kit enables cold weather starts with no choke and fast warm up. Cost me around 50 bucks.

+1 on the jet kit. Never touched the choke on my Vol. Cobra drags and K & N.

Cobra has the option of closed or open loop on their pipes.
You just have to select the year of your bike, or you can select O2 sensor option.
