I already post that same question. No one knows so far. Not even the dealer dudes. If the R6 is FI. I am getting that instead of the F4i.

VYPIR...Now you know that's the best kept secret in SportBikes!

One point though...Enough people have been talking about FI on Rs for a long time. Do you think Yamaha noticed?

I'm sure Yamaha has noticed. Afterall they were one of the first to use it, we have to remember the R7.
I guess my question should be when are they going to release the R6 and R1 models with FI, not if they are.

The R6 and R1 have carburators. (ms) These are devices that mix fuel and air by using a vacuum. There is a slide that can adjust the air flow and fuel mix based on the position of the throttle.
If you look at the fuel injector you will see a device that does the same thing, just goes about it another way. The fuel injector has a mechanized nozzle that will spray fuel into the collection chamber.

The real difference is that the FI systems are computer controlled and can adjust to the environment the vehicle is in. (to a limit) That is why they are considered better.

If Yamaha stays with their current way of doing things we will see FI on the '02 R1, then it will probably appear on the R6 in '03.

They just overhauled the R6 this year, I doubt they will do it again next year. Not too mention the R6 is still the one to beat in the 600 category...

If they don't add it too either soon they will be left in the dust outside of the diehard Yami fans.

I'm pretty dam sick of carbs already. Yeah it's easier to tweak and get extra power but it's terrible to tune and looking for a lot of downtime to get it dyno tuned.
