Funny story, but what EFI bike floods itself?

Well, this morning my bike gives me the old "I don't wanna restart, I just want to load up the exhaust with unburned gas" routine. So after cranking it for an embarrassing 6 seconds, getting a little chuff noise out the back end, now I gotta wait for the fuel pump to cycle. At that moment, a young(er then me) guy walks up with a proud look on his face and says "Your idle jet is plugged up a bit, I could fix it for you real quick, for a fee".

Now I have to say, I really wish I could tell you I came up with some amazing, piss and vinegar, yet wise words to have said, However, since I didn't have my coffee yet, I just stabbed the starter, and then mumbled "EFI" and took off. The look of deflation in his eyes was just absolutely soul-crushing.

I haven't read all the posts but I hate it when people say any of the "bad words"

Crash, wreck, fall... anything like that.

Story:

When I was 17 and had just graduated highschool. I was getting geared up to ride home for lunch. My coworker said to me "Don't crash" I went out and a guy made a left turn in front of me and hit me. Not my co-workers fault but its just something that is just wrong to say.

Not sure about bikes, but my stupid VWs with Motronic have done a damn fine job of flooding themselves.

Sunday afternoon ride with the guy's. Stopped for drinks and ATGATT. I enter the restaurant from the terrace and say: I want to pay. In the room there are quite a few elderly people playing bridge. The lady at the bar asks when I put my helmet in front of her: Are you with the bridge club?

You mean like "keep the rubber side down"? Which is., after all, "our" way of saying "don't crash"...

Don't know about bikes, but flooding is just one of the magical tricks the Isuzu 4ZE1's EFI will do to you. And there is always some helpful FF who tells you "Carbs do that, just floor it and it will clear out!"

Full Contact Bridge. The game ain't over 'til someone bleeds.

Actually, for the Vdubs, you put the accelerator to the floor prior to cranking. That alerts the ECU to cut fuel. Makes total sense!
