Cool project. I very much hope it works well and that mfg's start making FI 2strokes available widely. Only think that's annoying about my CR250R is that it's impossible to have it jetted right for an entire ride when a ride might go from 6k' to 12k' and 30 deg to 90 deg over the course of a day. I think the folks who don't see the value in FI probably don't ride in the mountains.

Thanks man.

most of the guys that say it isn't an improvement, its a waste of time, my carb works just as well, my carb can be made to work just as well etc are trail riders.

I understand why they say that, i watched a lot of youtube to see that they don't use their engine enough for the efi to be any benefit to them.

But where i live we don't ride trails, we ride dunes, enduro loops, motocross, and short adventure rides with the same bike.

But if i spend money on aftermarket ignition and all the carb mods to almost meet my objectives. I would have spent more money than my proposed efi system.

Been tuning EFI via the dyno for almost 20 years and I cringe when I have to do a carbed bike now. CV carbs are the best for all around use but will never touch EFI. lemme know if I can help ya. Just shoot me a PM and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks, I will keep you on my short list of experts to contact. The project is still ways off at the moment, engineering students don't have a lot of money. But i will see if i can't buy most of the sensors next year.

Like i said its going to be another 3 to 4 years until i have all the parts.

No problem. I don't plan on returning to the Home Planet for a while.
