I like the new electronics, I have very little trouble with my BMW or Subaru, normal stuff like oxy or cam sensors. Don't even ask about my 74 Volvo, that car was not ready for prime time.
Tomorrow I'm going to run some new wires on this bike, all that stuff is 30 years old and any one of them could be broken or have a little bit of a bad connection. When you think of it it's only a few wires. No rush, I have a few other bikes I can roll out of the garage, I'll ride the last LTD to work Tuesday if I'm not happy with yellow.
Tomorrow I have a mandatory furlough day which coincides with a wife day off so not much bike stuff in store.
With the modern computers you plug in the reader and it gives you a number. Then you find out it means something like catalyst below efficiency and you get to figure out what that really means, and it often could be two or three things, bad sensor, exhaust leak, bad cat, etc.
That is almost as annoying as this crap.
