Bikes are following that model and going the same way. Too bad. It's the end of an era.
As an ASE certified mechanic in fuel injection, I can tell you that is bogus in most cases. I can plug in my $80 code reader into most cars and tell you a wealth of information in seconds. Look up the code in the service manual and it will tell you exactly what to replace and how to do it. Lots of EFI trash cam out in the 1980-1990 that gave EFI a bad rap, but the new stuff is a walk in the park.
