The title says it all I guess, I miss my 1997 CBR 1100 XX Blackbird and want one again. Not sure if I can ask a question here, but I am giving it a shot. I had a 1997 which was carbureted. I believe in the year or two after that went to fuel injection. I tried looking up horsepower numbers on the different years and was shocked to see Bikez website shows a horsepower drop when the bikes went to fuel injection. Since when is a carb faster than fuel injection? I kept looking and found another site lists the the carb bikes as having less power. Does anyone know for sure which was faster?
