Fuel Injectors - replace them and - WOW !

Postby sykospain » Fri Apr 28, 2017 11:05 am

That most informative Pelican Parts forum currently has several members orgasming about their latest farkle - replacing the original EV4 or EV6 single-jet matched Bosch fuel injectors with the latest versions as fitted to new bikes, the EV14.
Have a look at the forum and spend a few minutes reading the extremely enthusiastic comments by those who've spent their well-earned 200 snoojits with a guy in Germany called Jürgen Tills ( tills.de ). He supplies a pair of matched units with some bits of hardware to ease the fitting to a 15 minute job each side. There's even a vid showing the vastly-different spray-pattern of the original compared to the new.
This is the list of people I'd trust with my bike.

Seems to be R1200 injector conversions for older models. Newer injectors may have enhanced spray patterns with possible benefits for engine smoothness etc. I haven't read everything on the subject but the jury seems to be out on the cost/benefit judging by the thread below thread. Also threads on ADV etc...

My view? If it ain't broke....

Well I was having some doubts about the injectors on my '93 R1100RS. It had been laid up for 8 years before I bought it and needed fuel pump replacement etc, but I have been running it for a year.
Fitted these rebuilt injectors http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/produc ... 352rx2.htm (does need to reuse circlip)
Big improvement in starting, instead of 8 seconds cranking for a cold start, it is going in 2 and hot start is instant.
Judging by the very small amount of fuel released when I pulled the supply line, I think the old ones had been leaking and needing to bleed air and prime after a day or 2.
Can't be sure about other improvements, I think it's pulling better at low revs but that could be wishful thinking
