Carburetors are superior to fuel injection.
I think you're onto something - Or on something 馃檮 You'd better get onto the Motogp and F1 teams. Oh and NASCAR. You could be onto something that they'd like to know And the US military so while you're there let them know as well.

Are EFI systems better for NASCAR cars?
Despite the high costs involved in switching to and maintaining EFI systems, they have pros that outweigh the cons. NASCAR races have seen far fewer retirements due to fuel injection system failures since they were introduced. Retirements due to engine failures have also come down drastically. That in itself is argument enough to refrain from using carburettor fed engines.
Carburettors could be adjusted by mechanics to suit the cars, drivers and tracks. A carburettor allows the mechanic to make 24 adjustments. EFI systems allow a mechanic/technician to make over 150 adjustments to the systems. Most of the adjustments that have to be made to the system can be made electronically. An EFI system can be optimised to get maximum efficiency and environmentally friendly performance from the engine.

All of those things add up to a more effective and efficient system. The only reason carburettors lasted so long was because they are a much cheaper system than FI - not because they are better in any way. I have heard said that carburettors can produce more power than FI. This MAY be true but it would be at a specific point in the rev range. FI produced more power over the whole of the rev range. Perhaps you should get one of these and end your angst馃榿

This seems to suggest that the zzr600 DID have a catalytic converter
Carburettors by their extremely simple nature are likewise extremely limited by what can be done to them unless all the electronic wizardry that applies to EFI is applied to carburettors.
Misapplied or incorrect logic is the only thing that I can see that can make carburettors better than EFI.

I鈥檓 missing your logic here (again). You鈥檙e praising a fuel injected car. By contrast this a 4.2 litre Audi with electronic fuel injection
206 kW (280 PS; 276 bhp)
@ 5,800
400 N鈰卪 (295 lbf鈰協t)
@ 4,000
produces more power from an EFI motor that鈥檚 33% smaller. The main reason that the 1765 kg Mercedes is quick is pure cubic inches tho鈥 its still substantially slower in top speed and acceleration than the 1770 kg Audi
