Versys clean exhaust.

I went for my first ride-out last week with a group of Versys riders. It was also my first ride-out with a group of bikes that were all fuel injected.
I never smelled exhaust fumes once and I was riding towards the rear of the group. The contrast with ALL my previous group rides over many years was startling since most carburettor bikes really smell rich, espcially if they have been tuned-up.

Interesting that you mention this Ted. I often notice while riding with my brother that his old ZG1000 smells rich. I thought it was just his bike but it sounds like it's common with carbureted bikes in general. The same smell as when following a car or small van up a hill.

Thus is one of the reasons we are all riding FI bikes now because if they had to meet EPA regs with carbs...our bikes would all smell like that and run ****ty.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.
