get the kohler. no valves to adjust.
FI is NOT new, maybe on lawnmowers it is.
My experience comes from automotive, and having taken engines apart to examine for wear, FI engines exhibit far less wear on the [expensive] parts. 100k used to be the [rough] threshold for engine life/wear. Well maintained engines=more, less maintained engines=less, but if an engine had 100k on it, you'd take it apart to look at it.
FI engines cylinder/piston last much longer as the cylinder walls are not getting "washed" down with a solvent [fuel].
Besides the benefit of lower fuel consumption, engine wear is reduced dramatically.
The only thing that I'd worry about with FI is that they are programed to run [very] lean [hot], not a good thing for air cooled engines. So, a little reprogramming would help, otherwise, there is no "downside" to FI.
