I do not miss having a carburetor. That was the 250's greatest flaw. It had to sit and warm up for at least 20 minutes before it would go without stalling. I know this was a common problem.

I've owned 4 250's myself, have worked on dozens more, and not a single one of them needed to sit and warm up for longer than it took to put on my helmet and gloves before riding off. That's ignoring the dozens of other bikes I've owned and hundreds->thousand I've worked on in my time as a MC mechanic. It my be 'common' in that people allow it to exist/don't know any better, but it is hardly "common" by way of being normal, acceptable, or something that can't be corrected.
