Q. I am confused about TB 350X and 500X! Both seems same in spec except cc and torque. What would you recommend? Carburetor for 350 and fuel injection 500, so in long run which one is reliable?
  • Carburetors are supposed to be more reliable in the sense that they are much "simpler" and can be fixed by any and every other mechanic.But fuel injected isn't a problem. Guess what is the problem? Lack of power in the 350. I regret every second that I didn't go for the 500 instead.
  • 350x is better although 500x has fuel injection only difference is that it has a crispier throttle response..and the torque output of the later is much better.. 500x is not worth the money.
  • Carb engines are simpler and reliable can be fixed by every other mechanic. But for 500x the power is more. More throttle and differenct colors.
