Lets see.
You don't own your home. Don't pay your taxes to prove that.
You don't own your body. Offer your sexual services to a female police officer to prove that.
Now you don't own your bike? So what do we own?

The question is: Who owns us?

Absolutely agree !!!!!! ..... For many years aftermarket kits are available for carbureted cars to be modified to injector's and visa versa .... .... ... No ECU needed ... No rev limiters, etc etc etc.

A quick Google search comes up with a 45 Mikuni for 127 inch V-twin Motor ....

Very good point HalfCrazy ....
